    five can't go into one so we have to put a 0, a decimal point after it and then a 0 again |dw:1436490129155:dw|

    so now 5 can be divided into 10 so divide 10/5

    |dw:1436490426589:dw| so 1/5 is 0.2 in decimal form

    so now we have 0.2 0.01 (thanks dan ) and 0.02 if I remembered correctly the more 0's after the decimal point the farther you will go.

    ugh wrote the wrong fraction... 0.02 is 2/100 which is 1/50

    but 0.2 is still huge because that's 1/5

    if I were to rearrange this from smallest to biggest I would start with the fraction with the biggest denominator.

    0.02 0.2 then 0.1 right?

    :/ I said I would start with the fraction with the biggest denominator 0.01 = 1/100 0.02 = 1/50 0.2 = 1/5

    because if that denominator is huge, it's small... I made a mistake... when I typed that.

    well if I look at this question differently ... and imagine the thickness of a nail.. I would say that 0.01 is much thinner than 0.2 so 0.01 has to be far.

    0.01 is also 1/100 and 0.2 is 1/5
