5/8 times 7/8 times 3/5 as a fraction  

 

    5             7             3 

 ––––   x   ––––   x   –––– 

    8             8             5 

 

multiply across the numerators       5 x 7 x 3 = 105 

multiply across the denominators    8 x 8 x 5 = 320 

 

so there's the answer        105                                             21 

                                        –––––      which will reduce to    –––––  

                                          320                                             64 

 

You could have cancelled the 5's and saved yourself a little arithmetic.
