    Answer: 20

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Four fifth means 4/5 = 0.8

    Let the number be represented by x

    From the question, 4/5 of x =16

    0.8x = 16

    Divide both sides by 0.8 to get the value of x

    x = 16/0.8

    x = 20

    Therefore, 4/5 × 20 = 16

    I hope this is clear, please mark as brainliest answer.

    Answer: 20

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the unknown number be Z

    So, four- fifths (4/5) of Z = 16

    4/5 x Z = 16

    0.8 x Z = 16

    0.8Z = 16

    Divide both sides by 0.8

    0.8Z/ 0.8 = 16/0.8

    Z = 20

    Thus, the unknown number Z is 20
