    Answer:

      eight more than a fifth of a number

    Step-by-step explanation:

    k/5 is one-fifth of a number. When 8 is added to it, the result is …

      eight more than a fifth of a number

    _____

    There is no multiplication by 5, so any phrasing with “five times” is incorrect.

    The one-fifth multiplier is applied only to k, not to any sum.
