Other than "minute (unit of time)", 分 can be used to express fractions and percentages: e.g. In this sentence below:
- 晚饭六七分饱就行。 (Wan3fan4 liu4 qi1 fen1 bao3 jiu4 xing2.)
六七分 means "sixty or seventy percent (full)". The whole sentence means: "For dinner, it is enough for us to eat until we are sixty or seventy percent full".
For more usages of 分 in this meaning, please refer to the example sentences.
