MULTIPLY FRACTIONS Question 2

A fraction is written as:
numerator
denominator


1  x  1  =
2      3
Step 1:To multiply fractions we cross-multiply, and can write the following:
1 x 1
2 x 3
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
6
Step 3: As a proof of our answer we can say:
1 = 2
3    6
1  x  2  = 1
2      6     6
Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a new fraction.
1  x  1  = 1
2      3     6
