$\frac{5}{2}$

#### Explanation:

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

$2 \frac{5}{10}$

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

$2 \frac{1}{2}$

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

$\frac{5}{2}$

Hope this helps!
