As we learned in the fourth grade, the word 'of' means 'times' or multiplication. This is a very powerful tool. 1 tenth of 1 fifth of 1 half of 12,000 = (1/10)(1/5)(1/2)(12,000) = 12,000/100 = 120

(200 / 4) / 5 = 10

The answer you're looking for - is 30.

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.

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)
