• You could have 3 by 2 2/3 (or indeed 5 * 1 2/5 or 7 * 1 1/7) but that's messy and in this case 4 x 2 is a much better answer

• Three rows of three squares side by side touching. Squares are divided into thirds vertically and fifths horizontally. In first two rows first two squares are completely shaded and 1 column is shaded in third square. In third row the top two rows of the first two squares and the first column of the third square are shaded.
