## Multiplying Fractions

### Multiply Fractions: Learn

To Multiply Fractions:

• Multiply the numerators of the fractions
• Multiply the denominators of the fractions
• Place the product of the numerators over the product of the denominators
• Simplify the Fraction

Example: Multiply 2/9 and 3/12

2
9
*
3
12
=
2 * 3
9 * 12
=
6

That last step can be tough, simplifying a fraction with big numbers. To keep the numbers small and easy to work with, you can cancel factors before multiplying. It's the same as simplifying a fraction, but you can choose the numerator and denominator of either fraction.

Example: Multiply 2/9 and 3/12, but first simplify the problem by canceling a factor of 3 out of the 3 and 9, and also canceling out a factor of 2 from the 2 and 12.

1 2
3 9

3 1
12 6
=
1 * 1
3 * 6
=
