$\frac{8}{15}$ pounds (about 0.53 pounds).

#### Explanation:

He ate $\frac{4}{5}$ of $\frac{2}{3}$ pounds.
so to find the answer, just multiply the fractions.

to multiply fractions, multiply the numerators and the denominators, then simplify.
$\frac{4}{5} \cdot \frac{2}{3} = \frac{4 \cdot 2}{5 \cdot 3} = \frac{8}{15}$

In this case, there is no simplifying to do because there is no common factor between 8 and 15. So the answer is $\frac{8}{15}$.

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