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

  1. Ms. Sue

    That can't be right.

    (1/5) * (8/9) = 8/45

  2. Americal

    It said to estimate

  3. Ms. Sue

    Yes -- 1/5 would be a good estimate.

  4. Americal

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

  5. Ms. Sue

    No. Are you supposed to estimate?

  6. Americal

    Yes

  7. Ms. Sue

    I'd estimate half of 1/9 >> 1/18
