When dividing anything by 5, an easy conversion to a percentage is to multiply the numerator (number on top) by 20%. So, 5 / 5 would be :

5 x 20% = 100%

Or more simply, 1.

9 / 5 would be:

9 x 20% = 180%

You could also just divide 9 by 5, giving you 1.8, and then multiplying this number by 100%, giving you 180%, confirming what is shown above

OR

1) 9/5=x/1002) cross multiply (9 times 100 and 5 times x)3) 5x=9004) divide both sides by 5 (5x divided by 5 and 900 divided by 5)5) 5x divided by 5=x and 900 divided by 5=180

so x=180%

9/5 = 9 divided by 5 = 1.8 = 180%
