Okay, so first- do you know how to turn a regular fraction into a percent?

2. ktlyn9 Group Title

No.

3. itsmylife Group Title

$5\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 5*5+2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 25+2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 27 }{ 5 }$

4. brinazarski Group Title

You divide the numerator by the denominator, and then you multiply that by a 100.

5. brinazarski Group Title

Do you understand what itsmylife just did?

7. brinazarski Group Title

The answer is not 40... what do you get when you divide 27 by 5?

8. ktlyn9 Group Title

5.4
