I'm unsure how this question is geometry-related. My only guess is that you are calculating the area of a triangle.

 $$\frac{1}{2}*5*3$$ When multiplying fractions together, I like to put integer values over 1. $$\frac{1}{2}*\frac{5}{1}*\frac{3}{1}$$ Do $$\frac{1}{2}*\frac{5}{1}$$ by multiplying the numerators and denominators. $$\frac{5}{2}*\frac{3}{1}$$ Do $$\frac{5}{2}*\frac{3}{1}$$ by multiplying the numerators and denominators. $$\frac{15}{2}=7.5$$

There you go! I'm glad to help!
