Your friend is trying to convince you to go with him to see a movie that is 2 2/3 hours long. How many thirds of an hour is that?
Well, we want
to convert that "2" into thirds - there are three thirds in each 2, so 2
× 3 = 6 thirds of an hour. Add 2 more thirds of an hour (from the 2/3
part of the problem) to get a total of 8/3 hours. We know how valuable
every 1/3 of an hour is to you, so hopefully your friend will understand
when he learns you can't afford to lose that many of them. Besides,
that's much too long for a Harold and Kumar movie.
