(2+7/20)/(2/5)

First, let's make the mixed number into a fraction.

2(20)+7 = 47

Our improper fraction is 47/20.

Now, we'll divide fractions.

$$\frac{47/20}{2/5}=47/20\times5/2$$

Multiply the tops and bottoms separately.

47*5 = 235

20*2 = 40

The improper is 235/40

If we want to change this to a mixed number, this will take some extra steps.

First, let's simplify.

Both numbers can be divided by 5.

235/5 = 47

40/5 = 8

Our fraction is 47/8

We can now find whole numbers from this. Dividing 47 by 8 gives us 5 with a remainder of 7.

Our mixed number is 5 and 7/8.

Hope this answer helped!
