$8 \frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

Change both fractions into top heavy fractions
$2 \frac{1}{3}$ = $\frac{7}{3}$
$3 \frac{3}{4} = \frac{15}{4}$

$\frac{7}{3}$ x$\frac{15}{4}$= $\frac{7}{1}$x$\frac{5}{4}$
(Cancelling 3 , or dividing numerator and denominator by 3)
= $\frac{35}{4}$

=$8 \frac{3}{4}$
