### Multiply Fractions: Learn

To multiply a fraction by a whole number:

• Rewrite the whole number as a fraction with 1 as the denominator
• Multiply just like any other fractions
• Simplify the result, but do not convert to a mixed number unless the instructions say to do so

Example: Multiply 2/9 by 3

2
9
*
3
1
=
2 * 3
9 * 1

3

Just like with ordinary fractions, you can cancel factors before multiplying.

Example: Multiply 2/9 by 3, but first simplify the problem by canceling a factor of 3 out of the 3 and 9.
