In this topic multiplying two fractions you can find practice problems. Here we have given one example problems with detailed solution. After that you can find worksheets

To understand this topic much better we have given some examples using formula.

Example 1:

Multiply (5/6) x (3/8)

Solution:

To multiply these two fractions we have to multiply the numerator of the first fraction with the numerator of the second fraction and the denominator of the first fraction with the denominator of the second fraction. multiplying two fractions

= (5/6) x (3/8)

= (5x3)/(6x8)

= 15/48

We can simplify this using 3 times table. So we will get 5/16.

Example 2:

Multiply (1/17) x (5/8)

Solution:

The numerator of the first fraction is 1 and the numerator of the second fraction is 5 and the denominator of the first fraction is 17 and the denominator of the second fraction is 8.

= (1/17) x (5/8)

= (1x5)/(17x8)

= 5/136

We can simplify this. So the final answer is 5/136

Example 3:

Multiply (8/7) x (15/18)

Solution:

The numerator of the first fraction is 8 and the numerator of the
second fraction is 15 and the denominator of the first fraction is 7 and
the denominator of the second fraction is 18.

= (8/7) x (15/18)

= (8x15)/(7x18)

= 120/126

We can simplify this using 2 times table. So the final answer is 60/63

Example 4:

Multiply (1/7) x (56/18)

Solution:

The numerator of the first fraction is 1 and the numerator of the
second fraction is 5 and the denominator of the first fraction is 17 and
the denominator of the second fraction is 8.

= (8/7) x (15/18)

= (8x15)/(7x18)

= 120/126

We can simplify this using 2 times table. So the final answer is 60/63. Those are the examples to understand this topic better.

Example 5:

Multiply (5/13) x (26/18)

Solution:

The numerator of the first fraction is 5 and the numerator of the
second fraction is 26 and the denominator of the first fraction is 13 and
the denominator of the second fraction is 18.

= (5/13) x (26/18)

= (5x26)/(13x18)

= 65/468

We can simplify this using 13 times table. So the final answer is 5/36. Those are the examples to understand this topic better.
