You would need $8$ pounds of apples to make $20$ apple pies.

Explanation:

To work it out, use ratios.

If $2$ pounds of apples are required to make $5$ pies, then $20$ pies, which is $4$ times as many pies you are making, will also require $4$ times as many apples.

Therefore,

$2 \times 4 = 8$

You will require $8$ pounds of apples.
