Dividing by a fraction is the same thing as multiplying with the reciprocal of the fraction.

Thus, dividing

#1/10 -: 6/19#

is the same thing as multiplying

#1/10 times 19/6#

Now, multiplying two fractions means multiplying the numerators and multiplying the denominators.

In total, we have:

#1/10 -: 6/19 = 1/10 times 19/6 = (1 times 19) / (10 times 6) = 19 / 60#

Hope that this helped!
