Approximately a fifth, and I think it implies more than a fifth, but I'm not really sure about that.

That's right. It usually translates to "more than a fifth". I'd say "at least a fifth" is fine aswell.

That's right.

gut ein Fünftel or ein gutes Fünftel is something like "a bit more than a fifth".
