# Multiply fraction by fraction

a, c, e = numerator

b, d, f = denominator

-- = fraction line

## WHAT IS IT ?

Fraction is numerical quantity that is not a whole number.
• the top number (the numerator) says how many parts we have.
• the bottom number (the denominator) says how many parts the whole is divided into

﻿

## CALCULATION:

Enter numerator 1

Enter denominator 1

Enter numerator 2

Enter denominator 2

## EXAMPLE:

numeratorA is 1

denominatorA is 2

numeratorB is 2

denominatorB is 5

1   2   1
---- * ---- = -----
2   5   5

When multiplying fractions, we multiply numerators A and B and denominators A and B.

Common numerator is then

1/2=5

Common denominator is then

2*5=10

Since both the common numerator and the common denominator are divisible by 2, the whole fraction is simplified to its basic form

Common numerator

2/2=1

Common denominator

10/2=5
