Please read solution process below;

Explanation:

  • Changing fractions to a decimal you just have to divide the Quotient by the Divisor

For example;

#2/5 -> "Fraction"#

Now dividing #2# by #5#;

#2 div 5 = 0.4 -> "Decimal"#

  • Changing fractions to a percentage, you just have to multiply the fraction by #100#

For example;

#2/5 -> "Fraction"#

#100% -> "Percentage"#

Now multiplying #2/5# with #100%#;

#(2/5) xx 100% = 0.4 xx 100% = 40%#
