The DENSITY of water is 62 1/2 lb per cubic foot. Water that weighs 150 lbs will fill how many cubic feet? Is the answer 2 13/31

This problem is supposed to be about dividing fractions, but the answer I put in was wrong. I put in 2 13/31. You would get that if you did 150 divided by 62 1/2. Were my calculations wrong or off? Was I supposed to multiply? Please help me understand this problem, for future reference. I would also know how I would solve this problem.
