Answer for screen readers
The answer is $\frac{8}{3}$.
Steps to Solve
- Convert Whole Number to Fraction
To multiply a whole number by a fraction, first convert the whole number into a fraction. The whole number 4 can be written as $\frac{4}{1}$.
- Multiply the Fractions
Now, we can multiply the two fractions:
$$ \frac{2}{3} \times \frac{4}{1} $$
To multiply fractions, multiply the numerators together and the denominators together:
$$ \frac{2 \times 4}{3 \times 1} $$
- Calculate the Product
Now calculate the values:
$$ \frac{8}{3} $$
This is the result of multiplying the fractions.
- Final Result in Fraction Form
The final result is already in fraction form as $\frac{8}{3}$, so we can consider this as our final answer.
The answer is $\frac{8}{3}$.
