A group of students attend a math club half the students are boys and 4/9 of the boys have brown eyes what fraction of the group are boys with brown eyes

4/9 * 1/2 = 4/18 = 2/9

So, the boys with brown eyes are 2/9 of all the students that attend the math club

From the whole group half the club are boys.

fraction of boys from the whole class = 1/2

from this fraction, 4/9th of the boys have brown eyes

therefore fraction of boys who have brown eyes

= 4/9 of 1/2

the ’of’ function is used to multiply

\( \frac{4}{9} * \frac{1}{2} \)

when multiplying fractions numerators are multiplied by numerators and denominators multiplied by denominators

\( \frac{4*1}{9*2} = \frac{4}{18} \)

4/18 can be simplified by dividing the whole number by a common number

4/18 divided by 2 = 2/9

the answer is 2/9

2/9 of the club are boys with brown eyes
