In this problem, we are dividing by a fraction. However, we are never supposed to divide by a fraction. Rather, we must multiply by the reciprocal of the fraction. The reciprocal of a fraction is that fraction with the numerator (top of the fraction) and denominator (bottom of the fraction) switched. Thus, we simplify to find: -5$\div$(-5/3)=-5$\times$(-3/5)=3 Note, the answer is positive, for a negative divided by a negative is a positive.
