No. Half of one tenth is 1/20. To get 1/5 take two 'one tenth's ie twice of one tenth is one fifth.
No, one tenth is half of one fifth.
An equivalent fraction for one fifth would be two tenth if you multiply it by two.
They are two proper rational fractions.
Vulgar and equal
one and one tenth
Well, a fifth is one fifth of one, that's why it's called a fifth, it's divided into five. If your question was 'what is a fifth a tenth of?', then the answer would be two. What is a fifth a seventh of? 1.4, etc.
0.1 = 1/10 (one tenth) 2/20 (two twentieths)
Two fifths and one tenth are completely differentfractions - they are not equivalent values for the same fraction !
