About a third of an orange crop was ruined by a sudden frost. Another third of the undamaged fruit spoiled while being taken to market. How much of the original orange crop could the farmer sell at the produce market?

math 
Elena,
x initial amount,
x/3 damaged,
x  x/3 = 2x/3  undamaged.
2x/(3•3) =2x/9  spoiled
for sell
2x/32x/9 =4x/9
