Problem 1 :

Find the value of :

1/5 of 3/8

Solution :

1/5 of 3/8  =  1/5  3/8

1/5 of 3/8  =  (1 ⋅ 3) / (5 ⋅ 8)

1/5 of 3/8  =  3/40

Problem 2 :

Find the value of :

1/2 of 3/4 of 11/12

Solution :

1/2 of 3/4 of 11/12  =  1/2  3/4 ⋅ 11/12

1/2 of 3/4 of 11/12  =  (1 ⋅ ⋅ 11) / (2 ⋅ 4 ⋅ 12)

1/2 of 3/4 of 11/12  =  (1 ⋅ 1 ⋅ 11) / (2 ⋅ 4 ⋅ 4)

1/2 of 3/4 of 11/12  =  11/32

Problem 3 :

Find the value of :

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)

Solution :

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  1/12  (1/4 + 2)

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  1/12  (1/4 + 8/4)

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  1/12  (1 + 8) / 4

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  1/12  9/4

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  (1 ⋅ 9) / (12 ⋅ 4)

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  (1 ⋅ 3) / (4 ⋅ 4)

1/12 of (1/4 + 2)  =  3/16

Problem 4 :

Find the value of :

2/9  3/2

Solution :

2/9  3/2  =  (2 ⋅ 3) / (9 ⋅ 2)

2/9 ⋅ 3/2  =  6/18

Problem 5 :

Find the value of :

2/5  5 2/3

Solution :

2/5  5 2/3  =  2/5  17/3

2/5  5 2/3  =  (2 ⋅ 17) / (5 ⋅ 3)

2/5 ⋅ 5 2/3  =  34/15

2/5 ⋅ 5 2/3  =  2 4/15

Problem 6 :

Find the value of :

6 3/4  7/10

Solution :

6 3/4  7/10  =  27/4  7/10

6 3/4  7/10  =  (27  7) / (4 ⋅ 10)

6 3/4  7/10  =  189/40

6 3/4  7/10  =  4 29/40

Problem 7 :

Lily reads 1/4 th of a book in 1 hour. How much of the book will she read in 3 1/2 hours ?

Solution :

The part of the book read by Lily in 1 hour is 1/4.

So, the part of the book read by Lily in 3 1/2 hours is

=  3 1/2  1/4

=  7/2  1/4

=  (7 ⋅ 1) / (2 ⋅ 4)

=  7/8

Hence, Lily will read 7/8 part of the book in 3 1/2 hours.

Problem 8 :

David ate 1/3 of the pizza and gave 3/4 th of the remaining to his friend. What is the part of the pizza did David give his friend ?

Solution :

The part of the pizza eaten by David is 1/3.

So, the remaining pizza is 2/3.

The part of the pizza given to his friend is

=  3/4 of the remaining

=  3/4 of 2/3

=  3/4  2/3

=  (3 ⋅ 2) / (4 ⋅ 3)

=  (1 ⋅ 1) / (2 ⋅ 1)

=  1/2

Hence,  David gave 1/2 of the pizza to his friend. After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood, how to multiply a fraction by another fraction.
