Answer:

#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)#*#(total amount of lollipops in bowl)

You want #2/3# of the total #3/4#.

Given:
bowl is #3/4# full #-># (total amount of lollipops in bowl)
#2/3# green lollipops #-># (number of green lollipops)

Substitute values into formula:
#2/3*3/4#

Solve!
#(2*3)/(3*4)#
#6/12#
#1/2#

Answer: #1/2# of the bowl are green lollipops.
