Start by following the basic process for fraction multiplication, turning any mixed fractions into improper ones. Before you cross cancel or multiply, however, swap the numerator and the denominator in the second fraction. This is called taking the reciprocal and it is the key step to turn this into a division operation. Then, cross cancel, multiply across to get the answer fraction, and reduce.
A Fraction is a part of a whole or a unit, for eg. A piece of a whole cake (1⁄2 of 1 cake). A simple fraction consists of two parts, a Numerator and a Denominator.
