at 5 fingers per hand,

45/5 = 9 hands

It would be 9 as Steve said because when you divide or even draw the hands youll get 9.

right. 45 isn't evenly divisible by 4, so now what?

So, maybe erica miscounted.

maybe some hands had more fingers than others.

maybe all the students were giving erica "the finger" and there were 45 hands.

come on, man. I think we can assume that "fingers" meant "digits" and that each student raised one hand.

nice try, though.
