Here are the steps I took to solve this one.

Since it's multiplication, we can combine the two.
275/32 * 64/25 is the same as
(275 * 64) over (32 * 25)

I converted 275 to 25 * 11
I converted 62 to 32 * 2

Now we have 25 * 11 * 32 * 2 on the top
And we have 32 * 25 on the bottom
The 32 and 25 cancel,
leaving us with 11 * 2, which is 22.
