(2 1/2) / (3/4)

Remember the rule for division of fractions; Invert(turn over) the right hand fraction, and multiply together.

Hence

(5/2) / ( 3/4)

5/2 X 4/3

Cancel down by '2'

5/1 X 2/3

Separately multiply the numerators and athen the denominators.

10/3

Convert to a mixed number. '3 1/3' The answer.
