Multiply Mixed Numbers
Multiply Mixed Numbers: Learn
Mixed numbers consist of an integer followed by a fraction. To Multiply Mixed Numbers:
- Convert each mixed number to an improper fraction.
- Multiply the two numerators together.
- Multiply the two denominators together.
- Convert the result back to a mixed number if it is an improper fraction.
- Simplify the result.
Example: Multiply 6 2/8 by 3 5/9
That last step can be tough, simplifying a fraction with big numbers. To keep the numbers small and easy to work with, you can cancel factors before multiplying. It's the same as simplifying a fraction, but you can choose the numerator and denominator of either fraction.
Example: Multiply again, but simplify the problem by canceling a factor of 8 out of the 32 and 8.
