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?

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
