6/5 should be correct

The word 'percent' means 'for every 100' or 'per 100'. And the word 'per' can be the fraction line that separate the numerator and denominator.  So, 120% can be read as '120 per 100'. [latex]\frac{120}{100}[/latex] Simplify. [latex]\frac{120}{100} = \frac{12}{10} = \frac{6}{5}[/latex] Convert the improper fraction into a mixed number. [latex]\frac{6}{5} = 1 \frac{1}{5}[/latex] So, 1 1/5 is the answer.
