Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Is it 2/5 into a fraction or a decimal? Because 2/5 in already in fraction form. If you meant converting 2/5 into a decimal then follow these steps:

First off, we'll interpret the fraction bar to mean "divided by." This means that 2/5 is the same as 2 divided by 5.

Second, you have requested to see 3 decimal places in your answer, so we'll write the 2 as 2.000 instead (a 2 with 3 zeros after the decimal point).

Now, we'll just do what the fraction bar says: divide 2.000 by 5

And that's about it! 2/5 written as a decimal to 3 decimal places is 0.400.

If this is not what you are looking for please clarify. Thank you!

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
