Or you can multiply 20 by 0.08.

If you have one cake and divide between people they get half each  this is fractions. 2 x 1/2 = 1 (two halfs equal one whole). Another way to look at it is to say they get 50% each because just as 1/1 is a whole cake, 100% is also the whole cake. Since 50 is half of one hundred and they each get half of the cake, they are receiving 50% of the cake each.
