\(1\frac15\div3\)

 

Convert  1 and 1/5  into a single fraction.

 

\(=(1+\frac15)\div3 \\~\\ =(\frac55+\frac15)\div3\\~\\ =\frac65\div3\)

 

Now we can just divide like this...

 

\(=\frac{6\div3}5 \\~\\ =\frac25\)

1 1/5   /    3

 

1  1/5  =  6/5  

 

3  =  15/5     

 

So we have

 

 6

 5                                                                    

__         =  "cancel" the denominators          6    =      2

                                                                    15           5

15

 5
