Please follow proper rules to post your queries

Now 4*= \(\frac{2}{2}+\frac{2}{3}+\frac{2}{4}=1+2/3+1/2=13/6\)..

6*=4*\(+\frac{2}{5}+\frac{2}{6}=\frac{13}{6}+\frac{2}{5}+\frac{2}{6}=\frac{15}{6}+\frac{2}{5}=\frac{5}{2}+\frac{2}{5}=\frac{(25+4)}{10}=\frac{29}{10}\)

So \(\frac{4*}{6*}=(\frac{13}{6})/(\frac{29}{10})=\frac{13*10}{6*29}=\frac{65}{87}\)
