# Multiplying Fractions – Learning Math for Kids

– [Instructor] Multiplying fractions. (upbeat tropical music) Multiplying fractions can
be easy as one, two, three. Just watch this video and
you’ll be combining fractions with ease. There are three steps to
multiplying fractions. First, you multiply the numerators, that result is the new numerator. Then, you multiply the denominators, that result is the new denominator. Finally, you simplify your new fraction and that’s the answer. Let’s try it! 1/2 times 1/2, first you
multiply the numerator, then the denominator,
and you have your answer, 1/4. 3/8 times 2/5, 6/40, which simplifies to, 3/20. Let’s try one more time. 2/4 times 5/7, that’s right, it’s 5/14. Good luck multiplying fractions and thanks for watching!

thanks

2. Little Rainbow Learners says:

Great video a very creative way to teach kids multiply and fractions

3. yuriikiki says:

2/4 X 5/7 = 10/28 NOT 5/14.

4. Hemming Shelby says:

wrong it equalls 10/24

5. Julian Mayeda says:

SMERT

good job

7. eLiTe X TDogs says:

Very Educational good Job

8. Snoe Leopard says:

2 x 5 is 10 not 5 and 4 x 7 is not 14, it is 28

9. iinkt says:

Wowzers was she actually wrong? I'm too lazy to watch the video

10. Yiniva Uribe says:

No it's not ,but the Answer is technically right cause it's simplified.. you always have to simplify

11. Laura Rodriguez says:

Would've loved to have used this for my classroom…but you skipped the simplifying step in the last problem!

12. RikudouBlitz says:

Music annoying -_-

13. RikudouBlitz says:

bru you dont simplify last question -_-

14. Grecia Yamali says:

20+20is40

15. Hema Bisht says:

that is reduced

16. Hema Bisht says:

10/28 reduced 5/14

17. Hema Bisht says:

10 and 28 comes in the table of 2. 2×5=10 so 5 and 2×14=28 so 14=5/14

18. stitches heart says:

no 2 x 5 is 10

2 times 5 is not 5 is 10 and 4 times 7 is not 14

20. M Anders says:

Good. However, she established a pattern with the first two problems and then she switched up on the third problem by skipping a step and going straight to the simplified answer. That could be confusing and counter-productive to a child (or anyone) just learning fractions.

21. Luis Alberto Garcia Garcia0 says:

4×7=14 that wrong

22. Mylennium says:

That last one is wrong 4× 7=28!

Tu fracción es mal

30. DKC 7.2 says:

2 x 5 es =10 4 x 7= 28

31. Thomas VanHouten says:

For the third, you should multiply first before simplifying. That can get quite confusing.
