How to Multiply Fractions Support

Frazer says "To multiply a fraction by an integer, or another fraction, follow the simple step below:"

Step 1

If the number is an integer (whole number), then put it over a denominator of 1.

Multiply the numerators together, then multiply the denominators together.

Step 2

You may want to convert the fraction into its simplest form or convert it back to a mixed fraction (if it is an improper fraction).

And that's all you need to do to multiply two fractions together.

Examples

**
Example 1) Multiply
3
5
by
4
9
**

Step 1)

3 5 x 4 9 = 3x4 5x9 = 12 45

Step 2)

To convert this answer to simplest form, divide the numerator and denominator by their common factor of 3.

12 ÷ 3 = 4; 45 ÷ 3 = 15

So 3 5 x 4 9 = 12 45 = 4 15 in simplest form.

**
Example 2) Multiply
11
7
by 8
**

Step 1)

11 7 x 8 = 11 7 x 8 1 = 11x8 7x1 = 88 7

Step 2)

This fraction is already in simplest form.
