Yes, one fifth is the same as two tenths.

if you mean 5/10 (5 divided into 10) and 3/6 (3 divided into 6) yes, they are the same. If you simplify them and say a fifth of five is one and a fifth of ten is two. A third of three is one and a third of six is two; both answers are 1/2 which is the same answer for both.

Two divided by one fifth is the same as two times five. The answer is ten (10)

One third equals 3 over 15. Two fifths equals 6 over 15. So no.

This is the same as 2.25 x 3.2 = 7.2 (or seven and one fifth)

2/15

The same thing as one fifth of any ten things - two.

The answer is ONE (1). If you have one-fifth, and multiply it by two, you have two fifths.Five fifths is exactly the same as ONE (1).

One third = 5/15One fifth = 3/15, so two fifths = 6/15.So one third is less than two fifths.

One third equals 3 over 15. Two fifths equals 6 over 15. So no.

Convert both to fifteenths (3x5). One third is 5/15 and two fifths is 6/15, so two fifths is larger.
