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

    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!!!!
