• B.

5/1

• C.

5

• D.

1/5

A. 1
Explanation
When dividing fractions, you can multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. In this case, 1/5 ÷ 1/5 can be rewritten as 1/5 * 5/1. Multiplying the numerators (1 * 5) gives us 5, and multiplying the denominators (5 * 1) gives us 5. Therefore, the answer is 5/5, which simplifies to 1.

D. 8/9
Explanation
When dividing fractions, you need to multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. In this case, the reciprocal of 3/4 is 4/3. So, when we multiply 2/3 by 4/3, the numerator becomes 2 * 4 = 8 and the denominator becomes 3 * 3 = 9. Therefore, the result is 8/9.

A. 1/5
Explanation
To divide fractions, we multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. In this case, we have 1/3 divided by 5/3. The reciprocal of 5/3 is 3/5. Multiplying 1/3 by 3/5 gives us (1*3)/(3*5) = 3/15, which simplifies to 1/5. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/5.
