The words "multiplied by " are the same as saying "of".

Four eighths is the same as one half.

So, "one fifth multiplied by four eighths" is the same as saying

"one fifth of one half".

It's also the same as

" 0.2 of 0.5 "

You can swap the two fractions with each other, so it is also the same as saying

"one half of one fifth" or 0.5 of 0.2

The answer is one tenth, or 0.1.
