division with fraction is as you said flip and multiply. 1/4 *8/3=8/12=2/3 then add the 2 should give you 2 2/3

Ok it is divided in the total thin (2+1/4)/3/8 It was stated in a very unclear manner. The 3/8 is to be divided into the quantity 2 + 1/4. Why they did not use parens puzzles me, It seems like they are tryuing to trick you.

First add the 2 + 1/4 getting 9/4 then 9/4 / 3/8= 9/4*8/3=6
