write the fraction in words. ex. 1 1/2 would be one and one half
help me with it
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.
Ok i get it so far
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
now solve 0.4/100 because you want it to be a percent
what do you get when you solve 0.4/100 (you can use a calculator)
Now move the decimal two places to the right
(it's not always the number you start with haha)
I was showing you the full steps. You should get .4 again, and that equals 40%
WAIT NOT 40% its 4% sorry typo
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?
