Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Hi,
I'll explain to you the logic: To get one fifth of something you have to devide it by 5.  To get 2 fifths you multiply that value (of 1/5) by 2. 
Let's see: To get one fifth of 20 you have to devide 20 by 5 (so 1/5 of 20 is 4).... now, to get 2/5 of 20 (as you are asked for) you have to multiply it by 2 to get 8.   Mathematically you multiply 20 by 2 and devide by 5.
Best regards,

Love is the battery of life....

first you divide 20 by 5 and then you take two groups and put them together. That is how you get your answer.

20/5=4

4 4 4 4 4 =8 so the answer is 8/20
