Thus, the maximum value of a/b is 20/15 = 4/3.Similarly, a positive fraction is minimized when the numerator is as small as possible and the denominator is as large as possible; thus, the minimum value of a/b is 5/30 = 1/6. Therefore, the range of values of a/b is 4/3 - 1/6 = 8/6 - 1/6 = 7/6.Answer: E
