What are the basic steps for multiplying fractions?
In a bid to know and master what are the basic steps for multiplying fractions, endeavor to have a daily practice with this engaging resource. Let's begin with how to multiply two fractions.

When multiplying a fraction by a fraction (proper or improper), first multiply the two numerators and then multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions (answer).

When multiplying mixed numbers, you need to convert the mixed numbers to an improper fraction before multiplying. Follow the steps above.

When multiplying a fraction by a whole number, you must first change the whole number into a fraction by putting the number over a denominator of 1. Hence you now have two fractions in front of you to multiply. As usual, follow the steps of multiplying two fractions.
