when I multiply it back. HELP!!!!

    Your error is that you keep trying to divide (3 1/2)/(4 3/8). When you should do it the other way. (4 3/8)/(3 1/2)

    You should get 4/5.

    I said it in the reverse order. I'm sorry for the confusion. You SHOULD divide (3 1/2)/(4 3/8), not (4 3/8)/(3 1/2).
