What is 1/8 divided by 5?

math  Ms. Sue, Monday, January 28, 2013 at 7:29pm
(1/8) / 5 = (1/8) * (1/5) = 1/40

But when dividing i got 40 since the number has to be bigger than both of the numbers.

Why would it have to be larger than both the numbers?
If you had 1/8 of a pizza and divided it among 5 people, each person would get a pretty small piece.
