Math  double check me 
Reiny,
The first two are correct.
there has to be a misprint in the third, since according to your question you are appr. doing 1/5 * 5 which is 1 
Math  double check me 
bobpursley,
The second and third are wrong. There is no correct answer for the second.
2/3 of 3/4 is 1/2 
Math  double check me 
Ms. Sue,
I believe the problem in the third one is:
2 1/5 * 4 5/6
C is not the correct answer. 
I was wrong 
Reiny,
Ms. Sue read it correctly, I don't know how I missed that 2
so it would be appr. 2*5 which would be 10 
I was wrong 
Kim,
the correct answer: B
