Answer:

#21/55#

Explanation:

When dividing fractions, you always flip the second fraction (numerator becomes denominator, denominator becomes numerator) and you multiply the two fractions.

#3/7*7/5#

So now you multiply the numerators by each other and the denominators by each other:

#(3*7)/(11*5)#

#21/55#

Hope this helps!
