When 2/3 is divided into 3 equally, it would be:

(2/3) / 3 = 2/9

You cut a cake into 3 equal pieces and eat 1 piece.   You are left with 2/3 of a cake.

Your 3 children watch you eat and demand (an equal amount each of) the remainder.  What do you do?

You cut each of the pieces into 3 so now have 6 thin pieces; each thin piece is (1/3 ÷ 3 =) 1/9 of a cake.

You give 2 thin pieces to each child. Each child has received 2/9 of a cake.

Or...

2/3 = (2*3)/(3*3) = 6/9  (multiplied top and bottom by 3.  Note 6/9 and 2/3 are the same)

Divide 6/9 by 3 to gives 2/9 (think 6 thin cakes slices split 3 ways)

2/3 is the same as 6/9.  That is equal to 2/9 + 2/9 + 2/9.  Can you figure the answer now?
