    two-sevenths over two-fifths equals one and two-fifths miles per hour two-sevenths over two-fifths equals five over seven mile per hour two-fifths over two-sevenths equals one and two-fifths miles per hour two-fifths over two-sevenths equals five over seven mile per hour

    they want you do divide miles by hours \[\frac{2}{5}\div\frac{2}{7}\] you know how to do that?

    as the math teachers say "invert and multiply" which means flip the second on and go straight across \[\frac{2}{5}\div \frac{2}{7}=\frac{2}{5}\times\frac{7}{2}\]

    cancel the twos, gives you \[\frac{7}{5}\]

    maybe they want you to write it as a mixed number, or a decimal

    is \[1\tfrac{2}{5}\] a choice?

    So, it would be 2/5 over 2/7 equals 1 and 2/5
