You're welcome Ms. Sue. Kalyn, 52.3 can be simplified, by turning it into a mixed fraction. However, you can of course, leave it as 52.3. The first thing you can do is to figure out the place value of the 3. The 3 is in the tenths place, so moving the decimal to the right ...

She got 34.2 because she changed 1/5 to a decimal. Then, she added 0.2 to 34 to get 34.2, which is the same thing as 34 1/5. 1/5 = 0.2 1/2 = 0.5 In order to do this, just divide the top and bottom. So, for 1/5, just divide 1 by 5 to get 0.2. I hope this helps? :)
