Best Answer

37.5% not including Pluto
First Answer:

50% including Pluto.

Second Answer:

Of the eight planets in our solar system, three are smaller than earth. 3/8 = 38%.

However, we also know (to date) of more than a thousand other planets, orbiting distant stars. None of these planets so far is smaller than earth, but that it because planets as tiny as ours are difficult to detect. We expect probably half of all planets would be our size or smaller.
