Hi poopinthepott,

This sounds like an exercise in reducing fractions. I've included some links below that will hopefully help.

The easiest fraction is 4/10.

To find another fraction which is equal to 40%, we can multiply both the numerator and denominator by the same number (which is essentially multiplying the original fraction by 1), to get a non-reduced fraction.

4/10 * (5/5) = (4*5) / (10*5) = 20/50

We can use the same principle to find a final non-reduced fraction:
4/10 * (10/10) = (4*10) / (10*10) = 40/100

Hope that helped!
