    \[5\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 5*5+2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 25+2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 27 }{ 5 }\]

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

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

    Now the fraction is in decimal form, so multiply that by a 100 and you'll have your percentage!
