– [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!
