    If I were you I would change that Mixed Number into an improper fraction

    So can you tell me what \[3\frac{ 1 }{ 5}\] is as an improper fraction?

    Multiply 3 by 5 and add 1 to get the numerator.

    \[\frac{ 16 }{ 5}\]*\[\frac{ 10 }{ 7}\]

    you will make the \[3\frac{ 1 }{ 5 }\] in a improper fraction then switch the numerator of the second fraction then multiply it

    When dividing I like to flip the second fraction (Known as the reciprical)

    What @MathLegend says is correct. \[\frac{ 16 }{ 5 } \times \frac{ 10 }{ 7 } = \frac{ 160 }{ 35 }\]

    instead of using \[\frac{ 16 }{ 5 }\] times \[\frac{ 10 }{ 7 }\] = \[\frac{ 160 }{ 35 }\] .. use the cross multiplication for easy answering.. it will help you ..

    It is the same thing... doesn't matter.
