Answer:

#1.2# is the decimal, #1 1/5# will be the fraction

Explanation:

#1.# We can convert the percentage to a fraction, by dividing by #100#, which leaves us with #1.2#

#2.# We split the value into two parts, #1# and #0.2#.

#3.# #1# is just #1# as a fraction

#4.# #0.2# is equivalent to #1/5#

#5.# Together, it is #1 1/5#
