  • 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.

Rectangle divided vertically into 5 equal sections, the second section from the left has a vertical segment dividing it in half, first section and left half are shaded purple, right half and third section are shaded blue.
