2. This question must have a typo.

Do you mean 2% times 734?

OR

Do you mean break down 2/734 to the lowest term?

To reduce 2/734, we divide 2 into itself and into 734.

If we do that, this is what the new fraction becomes:

1/367

However, if you want to multiply 2% by 734, we must convert 2% to a decimal number.

So, 2% becomes 0.02.

Now, 0.02 times 734 = 14.68
