HI all;
1/3 * 1/5 = 1 2/3.
My question is what does the answer really mean ie does it mean 1 fifth and 2 thirds of a fifth?
thanks.
For starters I don't like the "mixed" notation. However the answer is simply wrong.
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{3} \cdot \frac{1}{5} = \frac{1}{15}$
There is no mixed number expression for this.
For the record, $\displaystyle 1 \frac{2}{3}$ is 1 + 2/3. This is in reference to some "unit" of length 1.
