  1. To turn a fraction into a decimal, take the denominator and slide it to the outside to make a division problem...in this case 1 divided by 5, which equals .20 To turn a decimal into a percent, move the decimal point 2 places to the right and add a percent sign. The 1 is a whole or 100% so 1 1/5 = 120%. Hope this helps!

  3. First, Alec, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.

    I searched Google under the key words "divide fractions" to get these possible sources:

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
