    hmm I would have guessed 1/5, but it must have something to do with starting on 50

    But it can be 50 since the number is greater than 49

    1 to 4 ratio means put in 1 for every 4 so you have put in 1/5

    imagine a 1:4 ratio of some liquid and water for every 4 gallons of water you put in one gallon of some liquid if you do this once, you have put in 1/5 of the whole

    Ok so basically the probability that you will get a multiple of 5 is a 1/5 meaning that for every 5 picks one out of the 5 picks will be a multiple of 5. In other words 1 pick will be a multiple of 5 while the other 4 will not. Do you follow @HELP!!!!
