    in words. You would write it as five and two fifths. You just write it as you would pronounce it.

    Anything to the left side of the "and" is a whole number. Anything to the right side of the "and" is a decimal.

    So, you have 5 as a whole number and 2/5 as a decimal. To get 2/5 as a decimal, you divide 2/5. You should get 0.4

    I was showing you the full steps. You should get .4 again, and that equals 40%

    so since your whole number is 5 and you now have 0.4, combine them to get......?

    5.4% because you add 5 to .4 and you get 5.4%! okay? Do you want me to cover anything else?
