    \(2\frac35\)

 

=  \(2+\frac35\)                 Multiply the  2  by  \(\frac55\) .

                                ( \(\frac55\) = 1 , so this does not change the value of our expression. )

=  \(\frac55\,*\,2\,+\,\frac35\)

 

=  \(\frac{5*2}{5}\,+\,\frac35\)

 

=  \(\frac{10}{5}\,+\,\frac35\)

                               10 cookies + 3 cookies = 13 cookies, so 10 fifths + 3 fifths = 13 fifths.

=  \(\frac{13}{5}\)
