In order to convert decimals to percentages, we need to multiply by 100. In this case, 0.2 multiplied by 100 is equal to 20. Therefore, 0.2 expressed as a percentage is 20 percent. We can also express this as a fraction. 20 percent is equal to 20 out of 100 or twenty hundredths. Dividing the numerator and denominator by 20 gives us one-fifth.
