    No worries. Sometimes math anxiety can obscure an easy answer. I'd much rather help you and make sure you get the answers right when you have to medicate a patient than make you feel bad for not knowing the answer.

    right i know sir but this is my strategy as to what i did. i just multiplied 1/2 times 4.. right then that was 2,, so 2 by 5 equals ten .. thats how i did it that way...its so backwards to me it sucks

    The key is to always set up the question correctly even if it's simple at least in the beginning that way if you have a more complex question later you can be consistent.
