A marching band is rehearsing in rectangular formation. 1/5 of the marching band members play 
percussion instruments. 1/2 of the percussionists play the snare drum. What fraction of all the band members play the snare drum?

I think the answer is 1/10

If I am wrong please show your work 

I did post this once already

Let's suppose  that the band has 100  members

 

(1/5)  * 100 =   20 play percussion

 

(1/2) (20)  =10  play snare

 

10  /100    = 1  /10     CORRECT, Alston  !!!
