1 1\5 time 18 1\3 simplify your answer type a whole number fraction or mixed number
11/5 * (18 + 1/3)
= 11/5 * (18*3/3 + 1/3)
= 11/5 * (54/3 + 1/3)
= 11/5 * (55/3)
= 11*55/(5*3)
= 11*11/3
= 121/3
= (120 + 1)/3
= 120/3 + 1/3
= 40 + 1/3
=====
Or:
11/5 * (18 + 1/3)
= (10 + 1)/5 * (18 + 1/3)
= (2 + 1/5) * (18 + 1/3)
= 2*18 + 2*1/3 + 18*1/5 + (1/5)*1/3
= 36 + 2/3 + (15+3)/5 + 1/15
= 36 + 2/3 + 3 + 3*3/(5*3) + 1/15
= 36 + 2/3 + 3 + (9 + 1)/15
= 39 + 2/3 + 2/3
= 39 + 4/3
= 39 + (3 + 1)/3
= 39 + 1 + 1/3
= 40 + 1/3
=====
Or if the question was:
(1 + 1/5) * (18 + 1/3)
= 1 (18 + 1/3) + (1/5) (18 + 1/3)
= 18 + 1/3 + (18/5) + (1/5)(1/3)
= 18 + 1/3 + (15 + 3)/5 + 1/15
= 18 + 1/3 + 3 + 3/5 + 1/15
= 21 + 1*5/(3*5) + 3*3/(5*3) + 1/15
= 21 + (5 + 9 + 1)/15
= 21 + 15/15
= 22
Comments
Forward slash, /, denotes Normal Division.
Backward slash, \, denotes Integer Division where the remainder is discarded.
E.g., 10/3 = 3 + 1/3; BUT 10\3 = 3.

The point is, Math is a language with grammar and syntax that is a large part of its value. You should learn how to write it correctly so you are not misunderstood.
