I'll do the first one:
8 * 5 = 40
I'll be glad to check your answers for the others.

math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 2:58pm
The second is correct. 35/5
The third one isn't 15 and 20.
Is 14 19/39 closer to 15?
Look more carefully at 19/39

i have a hard time with fractions. would i divide 19/39 to get .48 and round up to get .50 which would be 14 and .50 to go up to 15 and say 15/.5? thanks for your help.

math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 4:29pm
You're on the right track.
However, 19/39 is still less than half.
I'd round one of these fractions up and the other down to get  14/1 = 14
