Well, you could take 1/6 of 3 3/5
first convert 3 3/5 into an improper fraction
3 = 15/5 so 15/5 + 3/5 = 18/5 (= 3 3/5)
now multiply 18/5 * 1/6 this should give you 1/6 of the distance.
remember when you multiply fractions you just multiply the numerators together, and then the denominators together. like so...
(18*1)/(5*6)
so 18/30 miles now reduce
they are both divisible by 6 so
18/6 = 3

30/6 = 5
so she walked 3/5 of the way
