How do you find a fraction between 1/5 and 1/4?

perform each fraction as a division problem to find the decimal and move the decimal two places to the right to form a percent for each, then find any percent between the two and make it a decimal or fraction.

Take each fraction and perform a division problem. Take 1/5 and set up a one whole divided by 5. The number will be less than a whole, so add the decimal at the end of the dividend and bring it up into the answer. Add a zero at the end of the dividend because 5 will not go into 1. Next, divide to form a decimal (1 divided by 5= .2). Do this to both fractions. Move the decimal two places to the right in both numbers and add a percent sign (% is always out of 100.) After that, choose any percent between the two and make it a fraction over a 100 (22/100). simplify this fraction to lowest terms. The fraction will be tween 1/5 and 1/4.
