They add up to 4/5

Hint: four-fifths of "seven" is "even". Now how is one-third of one-half "el"?

One half minus one fifth is 3 tenths

7/10

Not quite. A pint is a half of a quart, or QUARTer-gallon. A "fifth" is a fifth of a gallon, so a pint is an eighth of a gallon, while a half of a fifth would be one-tenth.

15 and one half divided by 2 and one fifth = 7.5

The term "a fifth" refers to one fifth of a gallon. One fifth of a gallon = 750ml. Therefore, a fifth of Hennessy = One 750ml bottle of Hennessy. :-)

One half of one fifth is one tenth. You just 'double' the denominator if you want to get half of the fraction.

One half is bigger.

quarter x half x fifth = fortieth so the answer is 5

30 work inside out. 12000 /2 = 6000 (one-half) 6000/5 = 1200 (one-fifth of one-half) 1200/4 = 300 (one-fourth of one-fifth of one-half) 300/10 = 30 (one-tenth of one-fourth of one-fifth of one-half) OR you could also do it like this: 12000 / (10*4*5*2) (solving the brackets first) 12000 / (40*10) 12000 / 400 30 (the answer) 30 work inside out. 12000 /2 = 6000 (one-half) 6000/5 = 1200 (one-fifth of one-half) 1200/4 = 300 (one-fourth of one-fifth of one-half) 300/10 = 30 (one-tenth of one-fourth of one-fifth of one-half) OR you could also do it like this: 12000 / (10*4*5*2) (solving the brackets first) 12000 / (40*10) 12000 / 400 30 (the answer)

1/5 plus 1/2 is the same as 2/10 plus 5/10 = 7/10

-- To add one fifth to a number, add 0.2 to it. -- To find a new number that is one fifth bigger than the original number, multiply the original number by 1.2 .

"fifth".

one fifth

One tenth

No. Half of one tenth is 1/20. To get 1/5 take two 'one tenth's ie twice of one tenth is one fifth.

one half

Um the answer is 30 12000 /2 = 6000 (one-half) 6000/5 = 1200 (one-fifth of one-half) 1200/4 = 300 (one-fourth of one-fifth of one-half) 300/10 = 30 (one-tenth of one-fourth of one-fifth of one-half) OR you could also do it like this: 12000 / (10*4*5*2) (solving the brackets first) 12000 / (40*10) 12000 / 400 30 (the answer) 30

twenty and two and a half

That depends on what you mean: twenty add one fifth is 20 + 1/5 = 20 1/5 twenty, add one fifth (of twenty) is 20 + 1/5 * 20 = 20 + 4 = 24

One half is greater.

One half is five tenths. One fifth is two tenths. One half less one fifths is five tenths less two tenths, or three tenths. .5 - .2 = .3

8 and one quarter add 8 and a half = 16
