$\frac{7}{8}$
2$\frac{1}{3}$ To 2$\frac{2}{3}$ 2$\frac{1}{3}$/ 2$\frac{2}{3}$ Next, write 2$\frac{1}{3}$ as 7/3 and 2$\frac{2}{3}$ as 8/3. (7/3)/(8/3) Rewrite the problem in horizontal format, using the “÷” symbol for division. Finally, multiply by the reciprocal of the divisor. 7/3÷8/3=7/3 × 3/8=$\frac{7}{8}$
