Re: Could you please check my math?

The most accurate answer is with staying with the fractions:

3 1/5 X 1 1/4 x 1 1/3~~ 16/5X5/4X4/3 = 320/60 = exactly 5 1/3

When you convert 1/3 to decimal, then you have to decide how many places to carry, and it never comes out exact. It is, however, close enough for government work!
