I really don't know what to do on this question. If someone could start me off I could probably get the answer. Remember I am in 6th grade.

Dani has a sack of 50 pens. Of these, 10 are black, 15 are blue, and the rest are red. If she grabs a handful of 5 pens, how many would you expect to be black.

Since 10 pens out of 50 is 10/50, we can reduce this fraction to 1/5.

How many pens out of 5 would you expect to be black?

But Dani only grabbed 5 pens.

So would it be 1?

Right! :-) You'd expect 1 black pen out of 5 pens.
