9-74.

Convert both terms to equivalent fractions with a denominator of 12.

$\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)\left(\frac{4}{4}\right)+\left(\frac{3}{4}\right)\left(\frac{3}{3}\right)=\frac{8}{12}+\frac{9}{12}$

$\frac{8}{12}+\frac{9}{12}=\frac{17}{12}$
$\frac{17}{12}=1\frac{5}{12}$
$\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)\left(\frac{4}{3}\right)=\frac{8}{9}$
