So we're given the fractions, Teoh Over three and 3/6. Then we want to multiply those now weaken multiple across or weaken. Simplify. Um, so I'm gonna simplify first, which means that those threes would cancel out, giving me to over six, which is 1/3. If you would rather multiply across first. And that's gonna give you 6/18 which would also simple, uh, 2 1/3 So you can actually do the simplifying first and then multiply, or you can most modern and simple.
