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.

If you have mastered adding and subtracting fractions, often multiplying fractions will seem a lot less complicated. Many of the steps feel similar, but much of the work associated with common denominators is gone. However, multiplying fractions will put your reducing skills to the test! If you need more help, the fraction calculator at the link below is a powerful tool for seeing how fraction multiplication problems work.

When adding fractions without a common denominator, it is necessary to find a common denominator before adding the numerators. Find two equivalent fractions by determining the least common multiple of the two denominators and using that as the denominator for both fractions.

A way to address this is to learn how to compare fractions and find common denominators so that two fractions can be numerically compared clearly. The worksheets on this page provide exercises to do exactly that, and they are good practice for the steps necessary for other fraction operations.
