Two simple

Two simple fraction have the product of 3/10. When the smaller fraction is divided by the bigger fraction, the quotient is 5/6. What are the two fractions in simplest form?

Correct answer:

a =  0.6
b =  0.5

Step-by-step explanation:

a b=310 b/a=5/6  a (5/6 a) 3/10 a2=3/10 6/5  a=3/10 6/5=35=0.6
b=5/6 a=5/6 0.6=12=0.5=12=0.5   Verifying Solution:   p=a b=0.6 0.5=310=0.3 d=b/a=0.5/0.6=560.8333
