1. Answer: 10 students have a cell phone and only 5 of them can use social media

Step-by-step explanation: We see there are 40 students in total and 1/4 OF the class have their own cell phone. The OF means multiplacation so we do 40 X 1/4 which is 10 students who have their cellphone. We then again see 1/2 OF the 10 students can use social media meaning we do 10 X 1/2 which is equal to 5 students out of the 10 can use social media.

5

Step-by-step explanation:

First find the number that have their own cell phone

1/4 * 40 = 10

There are 10 students with their own cell phone

1/2  of the 10 can use social media

1/2 * 10  =5

5 have their own cell phone and can use social media
