Let U.S. dollar = 12x

The British Pound has 5/4 the value of the U.S. Dollar = 5/4 * 12x = 15x

The French Franc has 1/3rd the value of the U.K. Pound = 1/3 * 15x = 5x

The U.S. dollar costs what fraction of the French Franc = 12x/5x = 12/5

What does the statement "What fraction of" mean? Because I'm confused between 5/12 and 12/5
