    Lotte, we are all teased and have decided to give up.

    What is 1/5 ?

    I guess it is 0.2

    this made no sense to me. 1/5 is 0.2. 1/5 is 20%. 1/5 is 2/10. i dont really understand what it is we are looking for. The Bob...1 ÷ 1/5 = 5.

    1/5 is just a value, self explanatory.

    Yes, I think we are all agreed that we cede the floor to Lotte...
