$$2\frac35$$

=  $$2+\frac35$$                 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.

=  $$\frac{13}{5}$$
