    17/5 is not right tho, lots of people are answering it as 3 2/5 which is also wrong , the right answer would be 3 4/9 , why tho?

    it is not simply a 4. it has a bar on top, representing that it repeats the 4. so it is really 3.444444: simplified as 3 and 4/9 because 44(just adding on anohter 4 to make it in the hundred column) / 100 ( 44/100= 4/9
