How to multiply fractions?

The rule when multiplying two fractions says that you need to multiply the two denominators between them, and the two numerators between them and then those two values obtained form the new fraction which by case can be simplified if applicable.

For instance let’s take few examples and see their fraction forms after multiplication:

  1. Multiply 3/4 with 5/11 = (3 * 5) / (4 * 11) = 15 / 44
  2. Multiply 2/5 with 1/5 = (2 * 1) / (5 * 5) = 2 / 25
  3. Multiply 4/9 with 5/3 = (4 * 9) / (5 * 3) = 36 / 15 = 12 / 5

The same goes in case there are more than 2 fractions involved in the multiplication. For example let’s consider that we need to multiply 3 fractions:

  1. Multiply 6/7 with 3/16 and with 2/9 = (6 * 3 * 2) / (7 * 16 * 9) = 36 / 1008 = 1 / 28
  2. Multiply 1/3 with 7/5 and with 10/7 = (1 * 7 * 10) / (3* 5 * 7) = 70 / 105 = 10 / 15
  3. Multiply 2/9 with 1/7 and with 4/3 = (2 * 1 * 4) / (9 * 7 * 3) = 8 / 189

In case you don’t want to perform all these steps by hand this multiplying fractions calculator can help you do the calculation for 2 up to 8 fractions at a time. To do that you just have to choose from the drop down list how many of them you need to multiply.
