Answer: 2 daysStep-by-step explanation:The monkeys eat 3 ²/₃ buckets of bananas each day. Convert this to an improper fraction:

= 3²/₃ = 11/3 buckets per day

The zookeeper bought 7¹/₃ which is:

= 22/3 buckets

To find out the number of days the bananas will last, divide the buckets bought by the buckets eaten per day:

= 22/3 ÷ 11/3

= 22/3 * 3/11

= 66/33

= 2 daysIf dividing fractions, multiply by the reciprocal of the second fraction.
