First work out what 1/8th of 16 is then multiply it by5
So its 2 x 5 = 10
Shade in 10 squares 
(5/8)*16=10
i hope that this helps 
Hi there, 5/8 of 16 is the same as:
(5x16)/8
= 80/8
=10
So shade in 10 of the 16 squares.

10.
16 divided by 8 = 2
5x 2 =10 
10
I was quite chuffed i knew that cos that was the kind of homework question i would have no idea about when i was at school too :o) 
The answer is calculated by dividing 16 by 8 and then multiplying by 5. ie 16/8x5 = 10 (ten)

Draw 16 boxes.2 rows of 8. shade in 10 boxes that is 5/8s

10
16 divided by 8 x 5 
5/8Th's of 16 is 10
(0.625 x 16) = 10
So just color 10 Squares in on the graph... 
10

offcource 10, but that is pretty funny q to ask

10
one 8th is 2 so 5 8ths is 10 
10...

10  do your own homework next time, or you will never learn it!

shade in 10

shade in 10 of them
5/8 X 16 = 10
.625 X 16= 10
5/8 X 1/16 = 8/80 = 10 
First you need to find out what 1 eighth is, so divide 16 by 8, this is 2 squares. Then you can multiply this by 5 to tell you 5/8ths is  2 x 5 = 10 squares.

1/8 of 16 is 2, x5 is 10

5/8 of 16 = (5x16)/8=5x2=10

TEN,For crying out !!
Invest in a calculator, or a few brain cells. 
Divide 16 by 8 = 2
Multiply 2 X 5 = 10
Shade 10 out of 16 squares 
(5 / 8) * 16 = 10
divide the 16 sqares into eights. Each eighth will be 2 squares.
16 / 8 = 2
now take 5 of those eights.
5 * 2 = 10 
Are you brain dead? 5/8 of 16 squares, 2x8 = 16, 2x 5 = 10 if you have difficulty taking it from the beginning really, how about removing your useless self from the gene pool, thicko speak kill yourself very soon.

16X5/8 = 10 squares to shade
or If you mean 5/8 of a single square but there is a total of 16 squares; then shades a little more than half a square once you're done; do that 15 more times!!
Eitherway...
got the right answer first..you gotta give it to me. :)
