HI!!

3. misty1212

how many flowers are there?

4. misty1212

oh nvm there are 20 did you do $\frac{8}{20}\times \frac{1}{2}$?

5. anonymous

no you have to simplify the 8 over 20

6. anonymous

to 2/5

7. misty1212

yes to get the final answer sure

8. anonymous

so its A

9. misty1212

$\frac{8}{20}=\frac{2}{5}$ but $\frac{2}{5}\times \frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{5}$ right?

10. anonymous

no 5 x 2 is 10 not 5

11. misty1212

???

12. misty1212

$\frac{2}{5}\times \frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{5}$ for sure !
