$\frac{1}{2}$ of the bowl are green lollipops.

#### Explanation:

To find the amount of green out of the total number of lollipops, it's represented as this:
(number of green lollipops)$\cdot$(total amount of lollipops in bowl)

You want $\frac{2}{3}$ of the total $\frac{3}{4}$.

Given:
bowl is $\frac{3}{4}$ full $\to$ (total amount of lollipops in bowl)
$\frac{2}{3}$ green lollipops $\to$ (number of green lollipops)

Substitute values into formula:
$\frac{2}{3} \cdot \frac{3}{4}$

Solve!
$\frac{2 \cdot 3}{3 \cdot 4}$
$\frac{6}{12}$
$\frac{1}{2}$

Answer: $\frac{1}{2}$ of the bowl are green lollipops.
