Yes.

1/5 = 2/10 = 0.2

To convert a percent into decimal, divide by 100. So 5% = 5/100 = 0.05

The terminating decimal 0.151515 = 151515/1000000 = 30303/200000 The recurring decimal 0.151515... = 15/99 = 5/33

To convert 5% to decimal: 1. Remove the % sign. 2. Divide 5 by 100. 5% = 0.05 in decimal
