ther is 5/8 of left over , jay eats 2/15 of left over . how much of whole pie did jay eat

So Jay ate 2/15 of 5/8. 'Of' in math refers to multiplication so i think you would simply do the following:

2/15 * 5/8
= 10/120
= 1/12

I'm not 100% sure if I did this correctly. I think someone should verify this.
