The question might be confusing at first but if you look at t closely and carefully, you can get the answer easily. Work from left to right let us start dividing 800 by 2 since it is asking for the half of it first.

You will get 400 that you will use in the second which is a quarter. A quarter is equal to 1/4 so 400 divided by 4 which you will get an answer of 100. And lastly, the question is asking to get the tenth of your latest answer so, the formula would be 100 divided by 10 which is 10. That means that your final answer is 10.

10 is the correct answer. You can also use 0.5*0.25*0.1*800=10

The answer to this is 10. To answer the question, it can be solved step by step. You first need to figure out the half of 800. The half of 800 is 400. Then, you need to figure out what is one quarter or 1/4 of 400. The answer to this is 100. Now, in order to solve the question, you need to figure out 1/10 of 100. The answer to this is 10.

The other choices for this question are just meant to confuse you but as long as you would do the process step by step, you will not get swayed into making the wrong answer.
