The quotient is 8/15. This means that there is only 8/15ths of a 5/8 in 1/3. * To divide, invert the second fraction and multiply: 1/3 divided by 5/8 = 1/3 x 8/5 = 8/15 *To get 5/8, you would have to add another (7/15 of 5/8) to 1/3: 35/120 + 40/120 = 75/120 = 5/8 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1/3=0.3333333333333333 5/8=0.625 0.3333333333333333/0.625 = 0.5333333333333333

8/45 is equal to 8/9ths of one fifth, since 9/45 = 1/5.
