In my math book I got a question saying 1\5 times 8/9. My answer is 1\5 am I correct.THANKS

Math 
Ms. Sue,
That can't be right.
(1/5) * (8/9) = 8/45 
Math 
Americal,
It said to estimate

Math 
Ms. Sue,
Yes  1/5 would be a good estimate.

Math 
Americal,
What about if I did 5/8 times 1/9y answer is 1/9 am I correct

Math 
Ms. Sue,
No. Are you supposed to estimate?

Math 
Americal,
Yes

Math 
Ms. Sue,
I'd estimate half of 1/9 >> 1/18
