That's how math works, genius. .

actually thats not how math works, it would be (2/3)*4

Some people go straight to the multiplication, while others prefer to tackle the division first. The result will be the same, but the process of solving it will be different. .
you do what ever is in the parentheses and then add them both. nothing really to think about here.
