Since we are making only 3/4 of the recipe, we need to multiply the amount of ingredients by that fraction to reduce their amounts (since 3/4 is below 1 whole).
Since we we are multiplying fractions, we do not need to change denominators.
2/3 * 3/4 = let’s break this down to numerators and denominators to see it easier
2*3= 6 <— this is our new numerator
3*4= 12 <—this is our new denominator
let’s write out our new fraction
6/12 Can we reduce? Yes we can because there is a number than can go into both 6 and 12. Let’s use 6!
6/6= 1 <— our reduced numerator
12/6= 2 <— our reduced denominator
Now we’re ready to answer our question.Make sure you always reread the question to get the right units!
