Question:

2 7/10 x 5/6


Answer:

(2 7/10) × (5/6)


Change the number 2 7/10 to an improper fraction

= (20/10 + 7/10) × (5/6)

= (27/10) × (5/6)


Multiply the numerators and denominators of the two fractions

= (27 × 5) / (10 × 6)

= (135) / (60)

= 135 / 60


Reduce the faction to the lowest terms

= (3 × 9 × 5) / (3 × 4 × 5)

= ( 9/4 ) × (3 / 3) × (5 / 5)

= ( 9/4 ) × (1) × (1)

= 9/4


Convert the improper fraction to a mixed number

= 2 ¼


The final answer is: 2 ¼, or 9/4
