Let's begin. First off I just wanted to say thank you for all the views and favorites and supporting comments.

Step 2: The Goods

Let's say we have the equation 2/3 x 3. Now try to solve this on your own and post your answer in the comments.

Step 3: Now We Learn.

Instead of leaving it as 2/3 x 3, we can change it to 2/3 x 3/1. Do not change 3/1 to a whole number. Now just multiply straight across. 3 x 1 = 3. 3 x 2 = 6 so the fraction is 6/3. We aren't done yet. We can change that to a whole number. 3 goes into 6 twice. So your answer is 2.
