Today in class we learned how to multiply improper fractions.

- change the mixed numbers to improper fractions. (denominator x whole + numerator)
- multiply the numerators
- multiply the denominators
- simplify to mixed fractions

Here is an example of what it would look like if you were to do the question 2 1/3 x 1 1/4 =

Remember to Multiply the denominator to the whole and then add the numerator.

( 2x3+1=7 )

__________

3

( 1x4+1=5 )

__________

4

7/3 x 5/4 = 35/ 12

As step number 4 said : make it into a mixed fraction

Now we have to see how many times 12 goes into 35.

12 goes in to 35 two times so the answer is 2.
