User: what is 1/2 divided by 3?

Weegy: 1/5)/(2/3) = (1/5)(3/2) = [(1)(3)]/[(5)(2)] = 3/10 or 0.3 When you divide two fraction, turn them in a multiplication by reversing the second fraction. Be careful: multiply the numerator by numerator, and denominator by denominator. [ Sometimes student make a mistake by cross multiplying them. You can cross multiply two fraction only you have a proportion, for example 1/5 = 2/10 or when you see fractions like this: x/5 = 2/10. In this case you can cross multiply in order to solve for x. So 10x = (2)(5); 10x = 10; x = 10/10; x = 1 ]
