A. \(\frac{4}{27}\) B. \(\frac{1}{3}\) C. 3 D. 6 E. \(\frac{27}{4}\) Its not mentioned if remainder is 0 or not. Assuming Remainder is 0 when number is divided by \(\frac{2}{3}\) has quotient \(\frac{9}{2}\). Number is in form, \(x = \frac{2}{3} * \frac{9}{2} + 0\) \(x = 3\). Answer (C)...

Consider the number for which the quotient is \(\frac{9}{2}\) as x Since x divided by \(\frac{2}{3}\) gives us the quotient \(\frac{9}{2}\) x * \(\frac{3}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{2}\) x = \(\frac{9}{2}\)*\(\frac{2}{3}\) = 3(Option C)

A. \(\frac{4}{27}\)
B. \(\frac{1}{3}\)
C. 3
D. 6
E. \(\frac{27}{4}\) n *\(\frac{3}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{2}\) => n = 3 C is the answer. Alternatively N = PQ + R N = \(\frac{2}{3}\)*\(\frac{9}{2}\) + R N = 3 + R The Question doesn't mention if the division has a remainder, so R = 0 => N = 3

E. \(\frac{27}{4}\) X divided by 2/3 is a 9 / 2, so X times 3 / 2 is going to be equal to 9 / 2; the 2 gets cancelled out, the 3 gets reduced. X equals 3. That's it; correct answer choice is C.
