I am doing this in a single line, \[ \frac12 \times 5 = 3 \implies 2 \times \left(\frac 23 \times \left (\frac12 \times 5 \right) \right)= 2\times \left( \frac 23 \times 3\right) \implies \frac 13 \times 10 =4 \]

\[ \frac12 \times 5 = 3 \implies 2 \times \left(\frac 23 \times \left (\frac12 \times 5 \right) \right) \] \[= 2\times \left( \frac 23 \times 3\right) \implies \frac 13 \times 10 =4 \]
