One whole minus two fifths is three fifths.

There are five fifths in a whole.Think about it this way:Divide an apple into five equal parts.Each part is one fifth of the whole apple.There are five fifths in one whole. This whole can be an apple, an pear, actually anything, even numbers.1/5 is one fifth.Its decimal representation is : 0.20.2 multiply by 5 and you get 1, one whole number one.A fifth is a fraction of a whole number and is written as 1/5.Therefore 1/5+1/5+1/5+1/5+1/5= 5/5 or five fifths which is one whole number.Or said differently, 5/5 equals 1.

that's an easy one! there is 16 fifths in 3 and 1 fifth

five

(1/5)/(1/2) = 2/5, hence 2/5 halves make 1/5

1 fifth = 20%, so 3 fifths = 60% 1 fourth = 25% So 3/5 + 1/4 = 85% or 60% + 25% = 85% and in fraction form: 3/5 (4) + 1/4 (5) = 17/20 = 85% So it will make less than a whole

5 times 1/5 = 1
