#### Answer:

perform the operation 4 divided by 5 to obtain the decimal then move the decimal two places to the right to find the percent.

#### Explanation:

take the number 4 and divide that by 5. This means 5 would be the divisor and 4 the dividend. Place the decimal in the answer because the number will be smaller than one whole. Add a zero after the decimal in the dividend to get a complete decimal. Five does not go into 4 so you need to place a zero in the quotient. Next look at 5 going into 40, which = 8. This gives you the answer 0.8 this is the answer of 8tenths. To form a percent multiply the decimal by 100 (or move decimal two places to the right) because % is always out of 100. Place a % sign at the end and rid the decimal.
