#### Explanation:

First, expand the term within the parenthesis:

$30 \div 5 \div \textcolor{red}{\left(2 \times 3\right)} \to 30 \div 5 \div \textcolor{red}{6}$

Next, because these are the same operators ($\div$) we can perform the calculations left to right and continue until we have completed the simplification:

$30 \div 5 \div 6 \to \textcolor{red}{\left(30 \div 5\right)} \div 6 \to \textcolor{red}{6} \div 6$ -> 1#
