    lol when you multiply 3 to get the same denominator, you multiply it up and down so it's like this : 2x3/3x3 = 6/9 ^_^

    nope you're not, your just starting, and you'll get better :) with time ^_^ when you want to get the same denominator, you must multiply the upper part with that number and the lower part, for your example when you mulitply the denominator by 3 = 9 so u MUST multiply the upper part by 3 too and you'll get 6 ^_^ 2x 3 = 6 3 x3 = 9 so 2/3 (after multiplying both parts by 3 we get): 6/9 is it clear now ? :)
