how to write 6/9 as a product of a whole number and a unit fraction.

Any fraction can be multiplied by a whole number so that the product is a whole number. Simply multiply the fraction (in rational form) by its denominator.

Only if it happens to BE a whole number. As you probably know, you can't "convert" a fraction to a whole number, without losing precision. But the slope may well happen to be a whole number, such as 1, 2, 3, -1, etc. (or close enough to a whole number).

Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction and proceed with the multiplication.
