Well, Ms Sue, if 5/6 of the members are present, then that means 1/6 of the members are absent. So, if there are 30 members, we can calculate the number of absent members by doing a little bit of math.
First, we need to find out how many members make up 1/6 of the total. To do that, we divide 30 by 6, and we get 5.
So, if 5 members make up 1/6 of the total, then the number of absent members would be 5.
Therefore, Ms Sue, you are absolutely correct! There would indeed be 5 members absent. Well done!
