Vina's Fraction Test Corrections

Here are my fraction test corrections.

Q: In computer technology, a bit is 1/8 of a byte. How many bits equal 16 bytes?

The correct answer is 128 bits, because it is actually 16 divided by 1/8. I made a mistake on this question because I multiplied instead of dividing.

Q: Tamar had 1/2 of an apple pie in her refrigerator. She ate 1/4 of this piece of pie. What fraction of a whole pie did she eat?

The correct answer is 1/8, because 1/2 multiplied by 1/4 is 1/8. My mistake was that, I divided instead of multiplying.
