Let the no. of $\frac{1}{24}$ 's in $\frac{2}{3}$ be x.

Now, $x\times \frac{1}{24} = \frac{2}{3} \implies x=\frac{2}{3}\times 24 \implies x=\boxed{16}$

(1/24)x=(2/3)(8/8) ----> (1/24)x=16/24 ----> x=(16/24)/(1/24) -----> x=(16/24)24 -----> x=16

Let x be the number of 1/24's in 2/3. Then x * 1/24=2/3. x=16.

2/3 divided by 1/24 or 2/3 multiplied by 24/1 (reciprocal) therefore 2/3 * 24/1= 16

Two third's divided by one over twenty four .. If we're dividing we used to reciprocal the divisor and change the operation into multiplication and it will be.. two third's times twenty four over one 2 * 24 = 48 3 * 1 = 3 48/3 = 16
