There are two ways to do this.

 

The first way is to convert both numbers to decimals, then use a calculator. 

 

Since 6 is already in decimal form, we need to convert 5/8 to decimal.

 

5/8 in decimal form is 0.625. 

 

Using a calculator 6 / 0.625 = 9.6

 

The second way is convert both to fractions. 

 

6 = 6/1 

 

6/1 divides by 5/8 is equal to multiplying 6/1 by the reciprocal of 5/8.

 

6 times 8/5 is 48/5. The answer is the same.
