Answer:

#5/2#

Explanation:

The fraction is read as two and five tenths. The way its read essentially gives the answer away. We have

#2 5/10#

which can be reduced by dividing the top and bottom by #5# to get

#2 1/2#

To change it to an improper fraction, multiply the denominator by the whole number, and add it to the numerator. We get

#5/2#

Hope this helps!
