Answer:

#8/15# pounds (about 0.53 pounds).

Explanation:

He ate #4/5# of #2/3# pounds.
so to find the answer, just multiply the fractions.

to multiply fractions, multiply the numerators and the denominators, then simplify.
#4/5 * 2/3 = (4*2)/(5*3) = 8/15#

In this case, there is no simplifying to do because there is no common factor between 8 and 15. So the answer is #8/15#.

(to get decimal form, divide 8 by 15 on a calculator. you get .53)
