is 1/5*30=6?

 

Hello Guest!

 

Yes, \(1/5*30= 1:5\cdot 30=6\).

 

The multiplication and division take place in succession from left to right.

Yes, it is.  Matbe this is more easily visualized with the implied denominator written explicitly. 

30 has an implied, or understood, denominator of 1.  So if you write your problem thus:

 

1       30      30 

—  x  —  =   —  =  6 

5        1        5
