MULTIPLY FRACTIONS Question 1
A fraction is written as:
numerator
denominator
1 x 1 =
2 2
Step 1:To multiply fractions we crossmultiply, and can write the following:
1 x 1
2 x 2
Step 2: Now, we can multiply the 2 numbers in the numerator and in the denominator of our new fraction and we get the following:
1
4
Step 3: As a proof of our answer we can say:
1 = 2
2 4
1 x 2 = 1
2 4 4
Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a new fraction.
1 x 1 = 1
2 2 4
