Oct 31, 2016

$\frac{3}{10}$

#### Explanation:

Dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal.

For example, dividing a number by 2, is the same as finding half of it.
$16 \div 2 = 16 \times \frac{1}{2} = 8$

In this case:
$\frac{3}{5} \div 2$

=$\frac{3}{5} \times \frac{1}{2} \text{ } \leftarrow$ there is nothing to cancel

$\frac{3}{10}$
