How do you divide 4 by 5??
4/5=0.8 but how do i get the answer to show my work

You could show it by long division.
Put a decimal point after the 5, and continue from there. 
i know that i tried it but i keep getting 125

5 goes into 4.0 = 0.8
. . 0.5
___________
5 / 4.0 
This did not help, I am still confused.

Turn the problem around. Make sure that you divide 4 by 5.
