### Example Question #1 : How To Multiply Fractions

Express the product in simplest form:

Explanation:

Rewrite the mixed fractions as improper fractions, cross-cancel, and multiply across:

### Example Question #2 : How To Multiply Fractions

Evaluate:

Explanation:

By order of operations, multiply first:

Multiply 32 by 15, and position the decimal point so that two digits are right of it:

Now add this product to 5.96:

Append a zero to the 4.8, and align the decimal points:

### Example Question #3 : How To Multiply Fractions

Evaluate:

Explanation:

By order of operations, multiply first:

Multiply 14 by 16, and position the decimal point so that two digits are right of it:

Now add this product to 6.5:

Append a zero to the 6.5, and align the decimal points:

### Example Question #4 : How To Multiply Fractions

Explanation:

When multiplying a fraction, simply multiply straight across - numerator times numerator, denominator times denominator. When you do that, you should get this answer:

Do not forget to reduce. 3 and 30 can both be evenly divided by 3, which would give you  as your answer.

### Example Question #5 : How To Multiply Fractions

Multiply:

Explanation:

First, multiply the numbers, ignoring the decimal points:

Since the two factors in the original product have three digits to the right of the decimal points between them, position the decimal point in the product such that three digits are at its right. The result, therefore, is

### Example Question #6 : How To Multiply Fractions

Multiply:

Explanation:

First, remove the decimal points, multiplying as follows:

Between them, the two factors have five digits to the right of their decimal points, so position the decimal point in the product so that there are five digits to the right. This will require placing a zero in front as a placeholder, so the final result is

### Example Question #7 : How To Multiply Fractions
