Answer:
4/3
Stepbystep explanation:
2/3 = 1/2
1 = x
(2/3)x / (1/2) = x * 2/3 * 2/1 = x * 4/3 = 4/3x
2/3 = 1/2
1 = 4/3
tell me if I'm wrong I'm not 100% sure...

Answer:
It takes 3/4 of an hour to go 1 mile
Stepbystep explanation:
You can do this by setting up a proportion and by using decimals for some fractions
2/3 = 0.66667 Miles
1/2 = 0.5 hours
0.66667/0.5 = 1/x Cross multiply
0.66667 * x = 0.5 * 1 Simplify
0.66667 * x = 0.5 Divide both sides by 0.66667
x = 0.5 / 0.66667
x = 0.74999625 Notice when rounded this is 0.75
x = 0.75 Now notice that 0.75 as a fraction is 3/4
x = 3/4
