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

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 ..
