Answer:

#18#

Explanation:

Quotient is the answer after you divide one number (dividend) by another (divisor).

In this question #15# is the dividend.

Whereas, #5/6# is the divisor.

Calculation:

#=15-:5/6#

Note that that the sign #(-:)# could be change to #(xx)# to make calculation easier, but in order to do that, #5/6# must be inverted to #6/5#.

That will make the calculation looks like;

#=15xx6/5#

We can simplify #15# and #5# to give us the final answer;

#=cancel(15)3xx6/(cancel(5)1)#

#=3xx6#

#=18#
