write the answer in simplest form recall that of translates muliplication 3\5 of 30

3/ 5 * 30 =3 * (1/5 *30) = 3 * 6 =18

3/5 0f 30 , means 3 times 1/5 of 30.

1/5 of 30 = 6 3 * 6 = 18.

This is probably the translation is asking for.

## 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.
