  1. suppose I told you that half of 10 books are fiction. How would you figure that out?

    You multiply 1/2 * 10 = 5

    So, the same thing here. "of" usually means you multiply. Two-thirds of 2469 is

    2/3 * 2469 = 1646

  3. Basically all you have to do is multiply 2/3 and 2,469 and you'll have your answer.
