I REALLY need help with multiplying fractions and ESPECIALLY fractions like 1 3/4 or 2 7/8 or you know those kind of fractions! Also I forgot- WHAT ARE MIXED FRACTIONS AND HOW DO I MULTIPLY THEM?!

A dog is liking my face. Oh! It's time for our cat to sleep in a litter box.and a person hates golf and wants to become a pro who hats peanut butter and eats nacho cheese at 1:00 in the morning. Excuse me I need to watch grass grow!
There's no I in team, but there IS a me.
Hey want my #? It's 878! Can't you see it in my name?

It's very simple! Example: if the problem is 1/2 x 3/4, you just multiply the top numbers and bottom numbers. 1/2, the top number is 1 3/4, the top number is 3. 1x3=3. 1/2, the bottom number is 2. 3/4, the bottom number is 4. 2x4=8. your answer is 3/8

To multiply fractions, you simple multiply straight across on both numerator and denominator. To multiply mixed fractions, you change to an improper fraction, multiply across and then divide the numerator by the denominator. Any questions? :3

You change them to improper fractions. Example: 1 3/4 x 2 7/8 4x1=4+3=7/4 8x2=16+7=23=23/8 Multiply them! Multiply #'s across from each other. 23/8x7/4 4x8=32 23x4= 92 Answer:92/32 Simplified: 23/8 or 2 7/8

I wrote a whole explanation but it's waiting for moderator approval. I think it's because of the #'s in it.

Okay. Multiplying fractions: Example: Multiply 2/3 x 1/4 When multiplying fractions, the new numerator is the product of the numerators and the new denominator is the product of the denominators. Multipling the numerators gives 2 x 1= 2 Multipling the denominators give 3 x 4= 12 So 2/3 x 1/4 = 2/12
