Calculate each of the following parts of parts.
Draw a diagram to represent three sevenths. A rectangle divided into 7 equal vertical parts, with the first 3 parts shaded.
Since the green shaded region is three pieces, you can see that two thirds of this region would be the orange shaded region. The first 2 parts change from being shaded green to being shaded orange.
At right is a diagram representing one half of three fifths. Use it to help you find the answer to this problem.
