Answer:

#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%

#2/5# can be converted into a decimal by seeing that #2/5=4/10#. #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%#
