72...

1/2*18=9...so 9 whole oranges.

then 9*2=18...so 18 half oranges

4*18=72...so 72 slices

She has 36 slices. First, she had 9 oranges. She cut those in half, then into quarters. I assume you mean each orange in now cut into four pieces. 9*4=36 slices.

on how one reads the question.

If Angie cut the 9 oranges into halves and cut those halves into quarters , then the total number of slices would be 72 .

If Angie cut the 9 oranges into halves and further split the halves into half(quarters of original pieces) , then total number of slices would be 36 .

I would go with 72. ;)
