2 2/5 = 2.4 = 240%

#### Explanation:

The number 1 is the same as 1.00 and is the same as 100%.

The number 2, therefore, is the same as 2.00 and the same as 200%

$\frac{2}{5}$ can be converted into a decimal by seeing that $\frac{2}{5} = \frac{4}{10}$. $\frac{4}{10}$, spoken out loud, is "four tenths" and shows that the decimal is $0.4$. And $0.4$ is the same as 40%.

Which means that 2 2/5 = 2.4 = 240%
