$\frac{15}{16}$

#### Explanation:

If you're dividing $\frac{5}{8}$ by $\frac{2}{3}$, then you are actually multiplying $\frac{5}{8}$ by the reciprocal of $\frac{2}{3}$, which is $\frac{3}{2}$. Your expression to write would be

$\frac{5}{8} \times \frac{3}{2}$

Since

$5 \times 3 = 15$

$8 \times 2 = 16$

you get $\frac{15}{16}$, and since you cannot simplify that, that is your answer.
