The worksheets on this page have various types of practice for multiplying fractions. Included are problems that focus on cross-cancelling which is a skill that greatly simplifies the process of reducing fractions in the answer step. Cross cancelling prior to multiplying fractions results in much smaller products which are significantly easier to reduce and turn into proper fractions.

The steps for subtracting fractions is well illustrated in the fraction calculator at the link below. That page has a more detailed discussion of common denominators, mixed fractions and other topics that may help understand the steps necessary to subtract fractions.

Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!

To multiply fractions, first convert any mixed fractions to improper fractions. Then, multiply the numerators across to get the answer numerator. Do the same thing for the denominators, multiplying the two values across to get the answer fraction s denominator. Reduce, and if the answer is improper, turn it into a mixed fraction.
