There's a question asking me how many 2/3 fit into 6. I don't even know where to begin. Can someone help?

\[\frac{ 2 }{ 3 } \times x=6\] \[x=\frac{ 6\times3 }{ 2 }=\frac{ 18 }{2 }=9\]

Why are you allowed to move the x to the other side? How come there's a 2 on the bottom now?

@cthomasknight, the easy way to remember what to do is to keep in mind that 'dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by the inverse of the fraction'. That's what Gretacig does in her response: 2/3 * x = 6 but you need an equation with a shape like x = .... This can only be achieved by dividing left and right by 2/3. Now apply the rule above, about multiplying by the inverse of the fraction (so dividing by 2/3 is multiplying by 3/2). 2/3 * 2/3 * x = 3/2 * 6, where 3/2 * 2/3 = 1, leading to 1*x = 2/3 * 6 ==> x = 18
