We know that: (a / b)(c / d) = (ac) / (bd).

By what we have:

a = 5, b = 9, c = 54, and d = 1 (because 54 can be written as (54 / 1)...

(5 / 9)(54 / 1) = (5)(54) / (9)(1) = 270 / 9 = 30

HOw does 5 over 9 (54) = 30?

(5/9)(54) = (5/9) (9)(6)

Do you see that the nines cancel and you are left with 6*5=30?

Kind of a tricky way to state the question. By order of operations 5/9*54 = 5*54/9 = (5*54)/9

Maybe that makes more sense to you.

5/(9*54)=5/486

(5/9)*54=5*54/9

5*(9*6)/9=30 Basically you have 5*6*9/9 and 9/9 equals one.
