By ".65 2/3", do you mean "65 2/3%" ("sixty-five and two-thirds percent") or "0.65666666..."?

Thank you! :D

We can break up the number into two parts:



and in fraction form, those parts become:





Now, we need to get rid of the , so we multiply both fractions by , which will keep their denominators (bottom numbers) the same:







And as a check, we can divide 197 by 300 on a calculator to get:



... which is what we started with (with the last digit rounded up). :D


By ".65 2/3", do you mean "65 2/3%" ("sixty-five and two-thirds percent") or "0.65666666..."?

Incidentally,
