Answer:

#15/16#

Explanation:

If you're dividing #5/8# by #2/3#, then you are actually multiplying #5/8# by the reciprocal of #2/3#, which is #3/2#. Your expression to write would be

#5/8 xx 3/2#

Since

#5 times 3 = 15#

#8 times 2 = 16#

you get #15/16#, and since you cannot simplify that, that is your answer.
