**Anonymous**, Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at 1:46pm5 / 15 = x / 3

5 * 3 = x * 15

15 = 15 x Divide both sides with 15

x = 1

5 / 15 = 1 / 3

**Mindy**, Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at 1:56pmI got the answer 1 by doing this...

15 divided by 3 = 5

5 divided by 5 = 1

Is that a wrong way to answer the problem?

That's the way my book shows.
