Multiplying and Dividing Fractions

To multiply two fractions together, simply multiply the two numerators together, then multiply the 2 denominators together.

To divide one fraction by a second fraction, you need to invert the numerator and denominator of the second fraction so that the 'old denominator' is on the top, and the 'old numerator' is on the bottom half of the fraction. They can then be multiplied together to give an answer.

This is also sometimes called reducing fractions to their simplest form.

This involves dividing both the numerator and denominator by a common factor to reduce the fraction to the equivalent fraction with the smallest possible numerator and denominator.
