fliers to post around town. Last week, she posted

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Total fliers to post=80

Fliers posted last week=80*1/5=16 fliers

Remaining fliers=80-16=64 fliers

Fliers posted this week=64*5/8=40 fliers 

Fliers still not posted=64-40=24 fliers

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
