Fraction Frustration (Posted on 2004-03-24) Difficulty: 3 of 5
One third of twelve if you divide
By just one fifth of seven,
The true result (correctly tried)
Exactly is eleven.

How is this possible?

... and if that's the answer, it's more like adding 4/5 of "seven" to 1/3 of "twelve" and not dividing anything.
