Answer

$\frac{7}{10}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{7}{6} \div \frac{5}{3}$ Change division to multiplication. Invert $\frac{5}{3}$ and write its reciprocal. $\frac{7}{6}$ * $\frac{3}{5}$ = $\frac{7*3}{6*5}$ = $\frac{21}{30}$ Since 3 is the greatest common factor of 21 and 30, divide numerator and denominator by 3 $\frac{7*3}{10*3}$ = $\frac{7}{10}$
