The mixed number 4 (2/3) can be put into improper form, which would be (14/3). Next, you need to divide it by (2/3). An easier method is to multiply by the reciprocal instead, which is (3/2).  (14/3) * (3/2) --> (14 * 3) / (3 * 2) --> (42/6). If asked, this will simplify to 7.

change 4 2/3 to an improper fraction which is  14/3 and then divide by 2/3 14                      2 -----  divided    ------ 3                        3 in division you have to reciprocate the second fraction so it becomes: 14                 3 -----  times  ----- 3                   2 the threes cancel off so you are left with 14/2 which you know is 7 therefore your answer is 7 hope this helps :)
