Multiply the numerators together; then multiply the denominators together.

5/6 * 1/3 = 5/18

Your first question in your other post said that your problem was 5/6 divided by 1/3.

Two tutors showed you how to find the answer to that problem.

You need to divide to get 2 1/2.

The problem you posted above is a multiplication problem.
