# what if they wanted me to find out what 1 and two thirds of 36 was or 2 and two thirds of 36??

"of" means multiply.

If they say "what is 4 and 1/2 of 8?"

You take 4.5 x 8

Check down below ( at your first question) I answered it there.

## To find 1 and two-thirds of 36, you can follow these steps:

Step 1: Convert the mixed number 1 and two-thirds into an improper fraction. To do this, multiply the whole number (1) by the denominator (3) and add the numerator (2). The result is 5/3.

Step 2: Multiply the improper fraction (5/3) by 36. To multiply a fraction by a whole number, you can multiply the numerator by the whole number and keep the denominator the same. So, 5/3 x 36 = (5 x 36) / 3 = 180/3 = 60.

Therefore, 1 and two-thirds of 36 is equal to 60.

To find 2 and two-thirds of 36, you can follow the same steps as above, replacing the mixed number with 2 and two-thirds.

Step 1: Convert 2 and two-thirds into an improper fraction. Multiply the whole number (2) by the denominator (3) and add the numerator (2). The result is 8/3.

Step 2: Multiply the improper fraction (8/3) by 36. Again, multiply the numerator (8) by the whole number (36) and keep the denominator (3) the same. So, 8/3 x 36 = (8 x 36) / 3 = 288/3 = 96.

Therefore, 2 and two-thirds of 36 is equal to 96.
