Lesson Excerpt

Multiplying fractions may look difficult but it is actually quite easy to do! Unlike addition and subtraction, where the denominators have to match, when you multiply fractions you do not need to change the initial values.

To understand how to multiply fractions you should already have a basic understanding of what a fraction looks like. You need to know that the top number is called the numerator while the bottom number is called the denominator. When you go to multiply the fractions together you will be multiplying the numerators together and the denominators together to get the correct answer.

The steps to multiplying fractions are as follows:

1. Multiply the numerators
2. Multiply the denominators
3. Check to make sure the fraction is in lowest terms
