5-55.

Rewrite each decimal as a percent and as a fraction.

1.  $0.2$

The decimal $0.3$ is equal to $30\%$ and $\frac{3}{10}$

Use this example to help you solve the problem.

$\text{0.2 is equal to }20\% \text{ and }\frac{2}{10} \text{ or } \frac{1}{5}$

1.  $0.05$

Refer to part (a). Remember that this represents five hundredths.

1.  $1.75$

The decimal $2.25$ is equal to $225\%$.

1.  $0.002$

If you divide part (a) by $100$, the resulting decimal is $0.002$. Try dividing your answers for part (a) by $100$ to solve this problem.

$0.002\;=\;0.2\%\;=\;\frac{2}{1000}\;=\;\frac{1}{500}$
