▄︻デȺꞥꞩⱳēɍ══━一 In order to solve this equation you will have to add 4/5 five times: (counting Ashley herself) 4×1=4 5×1=5 + 4×1=4 5×1=5 4+4=8 =8/5 4×1=4 5×1=5 + 4×1=4 5×1=5 4+4=8 =8/5 8×1=8 5×1=5 + 4×1=4 5×1=5 8+4=12 =12/5 12×1=12 5×1=5 + 8×1=8 5×1=5 8+12=20 =20/5 20÷5=4 Therefore if Ashley adds all the candy together they will get “4 whole bags of candy.” Reply

In order to solve this equation you will have to add 4/5 five times: (counting Ashley herself)

4×1=4

5×1=5

+

4×1=4

5×1=5

4+4=8

=8/5

4×1=4

5×1=5

+

4×1=4

5×1=5

4+4=8

=8/5

8×1=8

5×1=5

+

4×1=4

5×1=5

8+4=12

=12/5

12×1=12

5×1=5

+

8×1=8

5×1=5

8+12=20

=20/5

20÷5=4

Therefore if Ashley adds all the candy together they will get “4 whole bags of candy.”
