Hey there!

If Daniel gets 4 out of 5 right thats a 4:5 ratio. If we let x be the number of questions he gets asked, and y be the number of questions he get right (64), we can solve for x.

$$x*\frac{4}{5}=y$$

$$x*\frac{4}{5}=64$$

$$x=\frac{64}{\frac{4}{5}}$$

$$x=80$$

Now you can figure out how many he missed!

Hope this helped :)
