Change to improper fractions:

2 1/2 x 3 2/9

5/2 * 29/9

Multiply numerators together and denominators together...

5 * 29 = 145

2 * 9 = 18

So you have:

145/18

Which changes to:

8 1/18

well.... its easy

convert 2 1/2 to 2.5

and 3 2/9 to 3.222222222

2.5 x 3.222222222= 8.0555555...

the 5 in 8.0555..... keeps repeating

2 1/2 x 3 2/9

= (2x1)/2 x (3x2)/9

= 1 x (3x2)/9

= (3x2)/9

= (3x2)/(3x3)

= 2/3
