erica counted 45 fingers when the students were asked who wants to play kickball.how many hands went up?

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.

thumbs are not fingers

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. 
the answer is precisley 9 hands:)

erica counted 45 finger how many hands went up.
