5/3 = 1.7 (1.6 repeating)

9/5 = 1.8

In addition to the three solutions given by Owen and the second solution given by Mrs. Elliott there are five others: 1,2 = 6 ÷ 5, 1,4 = 7 ÷ 5, 1,5 = 3 ÷ 2, 1,5 = 9 ÷ 6 and 3,5 = 7 ÷ 2

3/2=1.5

9/2=4.5

1.5

3.5

7 divided by 2

7 divided by 2 =3.5

9 divided by 5 = 1.8

25 divided by 8=3.125
