    well, she should eat then 1/5 ÷ 7, that way she’d split the 1/5 lb in 7 equal pieces, one for each day

    \bf \cfrac{1}{5}\div 7\implies \cfrac{1}{5}\div \cfrac{7}{1}\implies \cfrac{1}{5}\cdot \cfrac{1}{7}\implies \cfrac{1}{35}

    So 1/5 pound for 7 days
    1/5 ÷ 7
    rewrite the 7 as a fraction of 7/1
    1/5 
    ÷ 7/1
    keep the first fraction, change the division sign to multiplication, flip the second fraction
    1/5 * 1/7
    multiply across
    (1 * 1) / ( 5 * 7)
    1/35

    She should eat 1/35 of a pound each day to make her 1/5 of a pound last a week, or seven days.

    Hope this helps
