Form and equivalent division problem for
5 / 1/3 by multiplying both the dividend and divisor by 3. Then find the quotient.
IS it 5 / 3/9
Do I finish by mutliplying
5/1 x 9/3(reciprocal)?

5 / 1/3
5 x 3 = 15
1/3 x 3 = 3/3 = 1
15/1
Then find the quotient,
15/1 = 15
IF you did have to divide 5 by 3/9
you would multiple 5 by the reciprocal of 3/9, so
5 / 3/9 = 5 x 9/3 = 45/3
Yes, you were correct IF you had to divide by 3/9.
