    Answer:

    4166 ants

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To find how many ants were left, multiply 5000 by 5/6, since it decreased by 1/6:

    5000(5/6)

    = 4166.67

    Round this down:

    = 4166

    So, at the end of April, there were approximately 4166 ants left

    5000 – 5000 x 1/6 =

    5000 – 1200 = 833.33…

    5000 – 833 = 4167

    4167 ants
