RN Multiplying fractions
 To change the mixed number there are two wholenumbers at 3 pieces each plus the 2 you already had.To multiply fractions any whole numbers must be converted to fractions by placing them over one.All mixed numbers must change to improper.441••3883••2x+8323== Since multiplication is commutative, we can now simplify any numerator with any denominator.Now multiply across the top.  Put the answer on top.Multiply across the bottom.  Put the answer on bottom.Make sure the answer is simplified. 1414••381111÷ 3÷ 8••111831÷ 3÷ 8=                 or 4= New Problem.To multiply fractions any whole numbers must be converted to fractions by placing them over one.All mixed numbers must change to improper.To change the mixed number there is one wholenumber at 3 pieces plus the 2 you already had.166••1x+5323== Since this problem is commutative, simplify any top with any bottom.Multiply across numerators.  Record on top.  Multiplyacross the denominators.  Record on bottom.Make sure it is simplified.1261÷3••5153=                  or 10÷3= 1) Whole numbers to fractions. Mixed to improper.2)  Simplify any one top with any one bottom.  Repeat      if there are others (one on top and one on bottom)     that can simplify.  3)  Multiply across the top.  Record on top.4)  Multiply across the bottom.  Record on bottom.5)  Make sure it is simplified.  (If you did      step 3 right, this will automatically happen.)661÷3••3+x10313÷3==201or 1) Whole numbers to fractions. Mixed to improper.2)  Simplify any one top with any one bottom.  Repeat      if there are others (one on top and one on bottom)     that can simplify.  3)  Multiply across the top.  Record on top.4)  Multiply across the bottom.  Record on bottom.5)  Make sure it is simplified.  (If you did      step 3 right, this will automatically happen.)441÷2••12312÷2==61or 1) Whole numbers to fractions.
