the answer is one fifth

Answer: She used 1/5 of the original melon to make the fruit cup.Step-by-step explanation:Hi, since Mrs Sims cuts the melon in fifths, the whole melon is equal to 5/5.

She gives one piece to each of her four children.

Each piece is 1/5 of the melon.

Since she give 4 = 1/5 x 4 = 4 /5

The leftover is equal to:

5/5-4/5 = 1/5

So, she used 1/5 of the original melon to make the fruit cup.
