20 slices given out and each slice is 1/8th of an apple. \[20*{1 \over 8}={20 \over 8}\] Can you simplify 20/8?

Well 20/8 is the same as 10/4 which is the same as 5/2. < Can you see what I've done there?

No.. Let's try a different way. You have five halves. \[5*{1 \over 2}={1 \over 2}+{1 \over 2}+{1 \over 2}+{1 \over 2}+{1 \over 2}=?\]
