Answer:

#8/9#

Explanation:

For addition fractions, you first want to make sure your denominator is the same which in this case you want it to be a 9

#2/3times3/3+2/9#

# = 6/9+2/9#

#=8/9#

Remember whatever you do to the denominator you also have to do with the numerator. So since you had to times it by 3 for the denominator to equal to 9, then you also have to times the numerator by 3 which equals to 6.
