# What is 2/5 in decimal form?

Both fractions and decimals are just two ways to represent the same numbers.

## Answer: 2/5 as a decimal is equal to 0.4

Let's convert the given fraction to a decimal number.

**Explanation:**

To convert any fraction to decimal form, we just need to divide its numerator by denominator.

Here the fraction is 2/5 which means we need to perform 2 ÷ 5.

It is difficult to perform a division when a dividend is less than the divisor.

So, we re-write 2/5 as (20/5) ÷ 10.

So, 20/5 = 4

Now, 4 ÷ 10 = 0.4

Therefore, 2/5 = (20/5) ÷ 10 = (4) ÷ 10 = 0.4
