Accepted Solution

A:

namely, how many times does 5/4 go into 95/4? well, let's just divide,

[tex]\bf \cfrac{\quad \frac{95}{4}\quad }{\frac{5}{4}}\implies \cfrac{95}{\underline{4}}\cdot \cfrac{\underline{4}}{5}\implies \cfrac{95}{5}\implies 19[/tex]

[tex]\bf \cfrac{\quad \frac{95}{4}\quad }{\frac{5}{4}}\implies \cfrac{95}{\underline{4}}\cdot \cfrac{\underline{4}}{5}\implies \cfrac{95}{5}\implies 19[/tex]
