so this problem just wants us to find 2/3 of 7/8 'of' means multiply so 2/3 of 7/8 just means 2/3 times 7/8 remember [latex]\frac{a}{b}[/latex] times [latex]\frac{c}{d}[/latex] equals [latex]\frac{ac}{bd}[/latex] so [latex]\frac{2}{3}[/latex] times [latex]\frac{7}{8}[/latex] equals [latex]\frac{(2)(7)}{(3)(8)}=\frac{14}{24}=\frac{7}{12}[/latex] drake walked 7/12 miles
