Compute the value of 2/3 of 5

```
/** Compute the value of 2/3 of 5 */
public class FractMult {
public static void main(String[] u) {

double d1 = 0.666 * 5;  // fast but obscure and inaccurate: convert
System.out.println(d1); // 2/3 to 0.666 in programmer's head

double d2 = 2/3 * 5;  // wrong answer - 2/3 == 0, 0*5 = 0
System.out.println(d2);

double d3 = 2d/3d * 5;  // "normal"
System.out.println(d3);

double d4 = (2*5)/3d;  // one step done as integers, almost same answer
System.out.println(d4);

int i5 = 2*5/3;      // fast, approximate integer answer
System.out.println(i5);
}
}
