$${\frac{\left({\frac{{\mathtt{6}}}{{\mathtt{3}}}}\right)}{\left({\frac{{\mathtt{21}}}{{\mathtt{3}}}}\right)}} = {\frac{{\mathtt{2}}}{{\mathtt{7}}}}$$

 

$${\frac{\left({\mathtt{2}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{3}}\right)}{\left({\mathtt{7}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{3}}\right)}} = {\frac{{\mathtt{6}}}{{\mathtt{21}}}}$$
