of 6

**Explanation**

In this question ‘of’ means to multiply

When any fractions either proper or improper are multiplied with a whole number, the numerators are multiplied with whole number and the denominator will remains the same.

So, of 6

=

Since, both numerator and denominator are divide by their HCF i.e,

=

So, the answer is
