is it 5 or 2

First divide 400 by 10

400/10 = 40

then divide the result by 4

40/4 = 10

and lastly divide the result by 2

10/2 = 5

So 5 is your answer

5

Rewrite this sort of problems in the following pattren – which will remove the confusion : 1/2[1/4{1/10(400)}]

Now remove the brackets from inside to outside:

1/2[1/4{40}] = 1/2[10] = 5

Source(s): Still have any doubt of it ? ! ?

It is 5.

(one tenth of 400

=1/10(400)

=40

one quarter of one tenth of 400

=1/4(40)

=10

one half of one quarter of one tenth of 400

1/2(10)

=5)

One Quarter Of 200

Answer 6

1/2 * (1/4 * (1/10 * 400) )

= (1/2 * 1/4 * 1/10) * 400

= 1/80 * 400

= 5

Answer 7

400 ÷ 1/2 = 400/2 = 200

200 ÷ 1/4 = 200/4 = 50

50 ÷ 1/10 = 50/10 = 5

The answer is 5

– – – – – – – – -s-

1/10*400=40

1/4*40=10

1/2*10=5

5

1/2(1/4(1/10*400)

1/2(1/4*40)

1/2*10

5

So 5 it is.

Hope this helps.
