Answer:8/15 of Jayda’s vegetable garden are beefsteak tomatoes.

Step-by-step explanation:Since Jayda has a vegetable garden, of which 2/3 are tomato plants, and of these tomato plants 4/5 are beefsteak tomatoes, to determine the portion of the garden that is made up of beefsteak tomatoes the following must be done mathematical reasoning:

The common least multiple of 3 and 5 is 15, so 2/3 can be re-categorized as 10/15. In turn, of those 10, 4/5 are beefsteak tomatoes, which can be re-categorized as 8/10.

Therefore, 8/15 of Jayda’s vegetable garden are beefsteak tomatoes.
