# What is the value of 2/3 × 4 as a fraction?

A fraction is equal parts of a whole. To multiply a fraction multiply the numerator and the denominator.

## Answer: The value of 2/3 × 4 is equal to a fraction 8/3.

Let's find the value

**Explanation:**

We know that 4 is a whole number and 2/3 is a fraction.

Let's find the product of 2/3 and 4 by following the steps

**Step 1:** To multiply a whole number with a fraction, we need to change the whole number into a fraction by writing 1 as its denominator.

⇒ 4 = 4/1 is now a fraction with the same value.

**Step 2: **To multiply the fractions 2/3 × 4/1, we just multiply the numerators of both the fractions and denominators of both the fractions.

(2/3) × (4/1) = (2 × 4) / (3 × 1) = 8/3

**Step 3:** Simplify and reduce the fraction obtained to its lowest term.

8 is an even number and 3 is an odd prime number.

Therefore, the GCF of 8 and 3 is 1.

Hence 8/3 can't be reduced further.

### Thus, the value of 2/3 × 4 as a fraction is 8/3.
