Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And I would say it would probably be easier to just change it to a decimal (.20) instead of a fraction (1/5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, take a calculator and mutiply .20 by 139.76. you should get 27.952, and you round that to the nearest 2 decimal places since it is money, so it is 27.95
