    First change the mixed numbers into improper fractions can you do that ?

    2 5/6 (two and five-sixths) to change into an improper fraction multiply the 2 times the "bottom number" then add the top number can you try to do that ?

    and write the 17 over the 6 in other words 2 5/6 is the same as 17/6

    8 times the bottom number then add the top number that answer becomes the top number of the improper fraction the bottom of the improper fraction is 7

    now multiply two fractions \[ \frac{17}{6} \cdot \frac{60}{7} \] when multiplying it's always better to simplify first if yo can notice you have 60 up top and 6 below. 6 divides into 60 evenly you get \[ \frac{17}{1}\cdot \frac{10}{7} \]

    now multiply top times top and bottom times bottom \[ \frac{170}{7} \] now change back to a mixed number.
