Work Step by Step

This figure consists of two shapes: One which is divided into five but shaded completely, representing 1 whole (the same as $\frac{5}{5}$) and another which has two of its five equal parts shaded, representing $\frac{2}{5}$. In total, $1\frac{2}{5}$ is shaded. To represent the mixed number $1\frac{2}{5}$ as a fraction, simply add ($\frac{5}{5}$) and ($\frac{2}{5}$) to get ($\frac{7}{5}$).
