Answer:

#1/5 div 1/3 = 3/5#

Explanation:

#color(red)(a)divcolor(blue)(b) = color(red)(a)xxcolor(blue)(1/b)#

Note that #1/(1/3) = 3# (used later)

#color(red)(1/5)divcolor(blue)(1/3)#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(red)(1/5)xxcolor(blue)(1/(1/3))#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(red)(1/5)xxcolor(blue)(3)#

#color(white)("XXX")=3/5#
