$\frac{21}{55}$

#### Explanation:

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

$\frac{3}{7} \cdot \frac{7}{5}$

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

$\frac{3 \cdot 7}{11 \cdot 5}$

$\frac{21}{55}$
