Simple probability

You have 20 crayons to choose from : 5 are blue, 3 are green, 8 are red and 4 are orange.

If you randomly choose one crayon, what is the probability you will get armed crayon?

P(red)= I put 8 to 20= I put 80% but my friend said 40% who's correct? Help please!!!!!!!!!!

You have 8/20:

8/20 = 4/10 = 2/5 = 40%
