What is 5/5 divided by 1/2=

Report as

2, 5/5 = 1 and 1 divided by 1/2 is 2

That's my answer as well. But let's say the fraction you wanted to divide didn't equal 1. You would then invert the fraction you were dividing by and multiply.
5/5 / 1/2 = 5/5?2/1=20/5=2

Yes, I agree with you. But it is 10/5 = 2 not 20/5

2. You change the dividing sign to multiplication. Then you change the reciprocal of the 2nd fraction. So it would be 5/5 X 2/1. MUltiply across so that it is 10/5, then reduce it to 2/1 and the answer is 2. Hope this was helpful!

Dont just give the answer- give a solution
In division of 2 fractions you change it to multiplication by flipping the fraction on the right-
(5/5) / (1/2) becomes (5/5) * (2/1)
5*2 is 10 and 5*1 is 5 so you end up with
(5/5) * (2/1) = 10/5 which reduced= 2/1 or 2
