    Well, first, how many 1/3s are there in 83 1/3? In 83 there are 249 thirds, plus the 1 third you have 250 thirds.

    So how many 24ths are that? Well there are 8 24ths in 1/3. Divide 3 into 24 and you get 8. So 250 thirds are 250 * 8 24ths. Or 2000 24ths.

    You can check this by dividing 2000 by 24. You get 83 1/3.

    2000. There are 24 24ths in every whole number. So 80*24=1992. 1/3 of 24=8. 1992+8=2000.

    lol all you do is times 24 by 83 which gives you 1,992 and then one third of 24 is 8 so add that to 1,992 and it gives you 2000!!!!!!!! :)
