= (2 x 3) + 2/3

step 3 Make the above expression as individual fractions:
= (2 x 3)/3 + 2/3

step 4 Simplify the above expression:
= 2 x 3/3 + 2/3
= 2 + 2/3
2 + 2/3 can be written as a mixed number 2 2/3.

step 5 Find the decimal equivalent for the fractional part 2/3 in the above expression:

= 2 + (2/3 x 10/10)

step 6 Simplify the above expression further:
= 2 + (20/3 x 1/10)
= 2 + (18 + 2/3 x 1/10)
= 2 + [(18/3 + 2/3 ) x 1/10]
= 2 + [(6 + 2/3) x 1/10]

step 7 Repeat the step 5 to find the decimal equivalent for the fraction 2/3 in the above expression:
= 2 + [(6 + 2/3) x 1/10]
= 2 + [(6 + 0.67) x 1/10]
= 2 + (6.67 x 1/10)
= 2 + 6.67/10
= 2 + 0.667

step 8 Find the sum of above expression:
= 2 + 0.667
= 2.667
