215/12*10/61

I actually wonder if they want you to estimate it BEFORE you figure it out.

17 11/12 is close to 18. So let's call that 18.

6 1/10 is close to 6

So now we have 18 / 6

That's 3

Double check your assignment to make sure that's how they want you to do it. Or if they want you to figure it out - then estimate it.
