Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3(4/7) / (5/8) when dividing fractions, you just flip what you are dividing by, then multiply. step 1 : 4/7 * 8/5  this is a correct step step 2 : mistake here....it should be : (4 * 8) / (7 * 5) the rest will be wrong because he got the numbers wrong
