Work Step by Step

RECALL: $\frac{a}{b} \div \frac{c}{d} = \frac{a}{b} \cdot \frac{d}{c}$ Use the rule above to find: $=\frac{4}{5} \cdot \frac{10}{3}$ Cancel the common factor 5 to find: $=\frac{4}{1} \cdot \frac{2}{3}$ Multiply the numerators together and the denominators together to find: $=\dfrac{4(2)}{1(3)} \\=\dfrac{8}{3}$
