1/5   divided by 3      (3 is the same as   3/1)

 

1/5  /  (3/1)   =    1/5  *  1/3   = 1/15

(1/5) / (3/1) = 1/15

 

(1/5) / (3/1),

 

When you divide fractions, you take the reciprocal (flip fraction) of the second fraction (a.k.a, the one closest to the equal sign and change the division to multiplication.

 

(1/5) * (1/3) = 1/15

 

Hope this helped!
