We need to multiply the integer part of this mixed fraction by the appropriate form of $1$, in this case $\frac{5}{5}$ and then add the result to the fraction portion of the mixed fraction:

$\left(\frac{5}{5} \times 4\right) + \frac{2}{5} \to$

$\frac{5 \times 4}{5} + \frac{2}{5} \to$

$\frac{20}{5} + \frac{2}{5} \to$

$\frac{20 + 2}{5} \to$

$\frac{22}{5}$
