To determine the number of 1/5 there are in 4, divide the 4 by 1/5.
`4 -: 1/5`
To divide them, express the 4 as a fraction.
`=4/1 -: 1/5`
To divide two fractions, flip the second fraction and change the operation from division to multiplication.
`=4/1 xx 5/1`
`=20/1`
`=20`
Therefore, there are 20 fifths in four wholes.
