                                                            Problem:                   Multiply the fractions

 

                                                                                                           6/7 x 3/7

 

Solution                    Look at the fraction carefully

Step 1:   

                                

                                                                                Solution                    Multiply numerator and denominator of fractions with each other and simplify

Step 2:                               

                                                                                                            6 x 3 = 18  

                                                7   7   49

Step 3:                                                    49

Complete                                  

 

When denominators are not same and fractions are mixed:  

                                   

                                                           3 4/3 x 5 6/4

 

Convert mixed numbers to improper fractions and multiply numerator and

denominator of the fractions with each other i.e.

 

= 13/3 x 26/4

                        = 169/6

 

The answer is: 28 1/6 

                                                                                                                                  

 

Try two practice problems:  

 

                                                                                                Multiply the fractions:

 

A.   12/6 x 7/6

 

B.   4 3/5 x 2 6/7
