    I guess it won't hurt helping you out again hehe

    Using PEDMAS or BODMAS or whatever, we can multiply these in a sequence and in no specific order!!

    So, start with \frac{3}{5} * \frac{2}{4} first.

    This works out to be \frac{6}{20}

    Then, by following the sequence of multiplication, we can multiply our answer by the FINAL fraction:

    \frac{6}{20} * \frac{1}{7}

    Can you work out the answer from there?
