## When multiplying two fractions you multiply the numerator of one by the denominator of the other?

**A. ****Cross multiply fractions by multiplying the denominator of one fraction with the numerator of the other fraction and then comparing the two values. The fraction with the larger value is the larger fraction.**

## When multiplying two fractions multiply the numerator of one fraction by the?

Multiplying Fractions Step 1: Multiply the numerators from each fraction by each other (the numbers on top). The result is the numerator of the answer. Step 2: Multiply the denominators of each fraction by each other (the numbers on the bottom). The result is the denominator of the answer.

## What do you multiply the numerator and denominator by?

If you multiply both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same non-zero number, the fraction remains unchanged in value. Therefore, equivalent fractions can be created by multiplying (or dividing) the numerator and denominator by the same number. This number is referred to as a **multiplier**

## Do you multiply the numerator and denominator in fractions?

When multiplying fractions we simply **multiply the numerators together and the denominators together. Remember, any whole number can be represented as a fraction by putting it over 1. Reduce when needed.**

## When we multiply two fractions we write the product of the numerator over the?

Multiplying Fractions Step 1: Multiply the numerators from each fraction by each other (the numbers on top). The result is the numerator of the answer. Step 2: Multiply the denominators of each fraction by each other (the numbers on the bottom). The result is the denominator of the answer.

## What happens when you multiply both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by?

To multiply two fractions, multiply the numerator by the **numerator and the denominator by the denominator.**

## Do you multiply the numerator by the denominator?

If you multiply both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same non-zero number, **the fraction remains unchanged in value. Therefore, equivalent fractions can be created by multiplying (or dividing) the numerator and denominator by the same number. This number is referred to as a multiplier.**

## What happens when you multiply a fraction by its numerator?

**A. ****Cross multiply fractions by multiplying the denominator of one fraction with the numerator of the other fraction and then comparing the two values. The fraction with the larger value is the larger fraction.**

## When you multiply two fractions What do you do?

Rule for Multiplication of Fractions When multiplying fractions, simply **multiply the numerators together and then multiply the denominators together. Simplify the result. This works whether the denominators are the same or not. If you multiply the fractions 3/2 and 4/3 together, you get 12/6.**

## How do you multiply a fraction by a fraction?

The first step when multiplying fractions is to **multiply the two numerators. The second step is to multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions. The fractions can also be simplified before multiplying by factoring out common factors in the numerator and denominator.**

## When multiplying fractions do you multiply the numerator and denominator?

The first step when multiplying fractions is to multiply the **two numerators. The second step is to multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions.**

## Why do we multiply numerators and denominators?

Multiplying fractions is a lot simpler than adding or subtracting fractions because **we don’t need to find a common denominator, instead we just multiply across numerators and denominators. **

## What is the rule of numerator and denominator?

Simply put, **the numerator is the top number of a fraction, and the denominator is the bottom number of a fraction. However, you see that there is much more involved when you actually think about what those two numbers represent.**

## Do you multiply the numerator and denominator?

Rule for Multiplication of Fractions When multiplying fractions, **simply multiply the numerators together and then multiply the denominators together. Simplify the result. This works whether the denominators are the same or not. If you multiply the fractions 3/2 and 4/3 together, you get 12/6.**

## Do you multiply the top and bottom of a fraction?

There are 3 simple steps to multiply fractions Multiply the top numbers (**the numerators). … Multiply the bottom numbers (the denominators). 3. Simplify the fraction if needed.**

## What is the rule for multiplying fractions?

The first step when multiplying fractions is **to multiply the two numerators. The second step is to multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions. The fractions can also be simplified before multiplying by factoring out common factors in the numerator and denominator.**

## Do you multiply the denominator in fractions if they are the same?

**Multiplication of fractions do not require the same denominator, or the bottom number of the fraction, like addition and subtraction does. Instead, you would simply multiply the denominators and the top numerators. … In the example, you would multiple 4/5 times 5/6 to get 20/30.**

## What is the product when multiplying two fractions?

The first step when multiplying fractions is to **multiply the two numerators. The second step is to multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions. The fractions can also be simplified before multiplying by factoring out common factors in the numerator and denominator.**

## How do you multiply fractions with the same numerator and denominator?

To multiply two fractions, just do the following: Multiply the two numerators (top numbers) to get the numerator of the answer; multiply the two denominators (bottom numbers) to get the denominator of the answer.

## When we multiply two fractions we always multiply the numerator with the denominator?

Each worksheet has a variety of fractions all with a common (same) denominator. When multiplying fractions, simply **multiply the numerator (top number) then multiply the denominator (bottom number) and reduce to its lowest term if needed**

## What happens when you multiply fractions with the same denominator?

To multiply two fractions, **just multiply the numerators to get the numerator of the product, and multiply the denominators to get the denominator of the product. You can visualize this by starting with a drawing of 23 , then finding 57 of that quantity.**

## Do you multiply the denominator or the numerator first?

**to multiply the two numerators. The second step is to multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions. The fractions can also be simplified before multiplying by factoring out common factors in the numerator and denominator.**

## How do you know what to multiply the numerator and denominator by?

Simply put, **the numerator is the top number of a fraction, and the denominator is the bottom number of a fraction. However, you see that there is much more involved when you actually think about what those two numbers represent.**

## What happens to the numerator when you multiply a fraction by a whole number?

To multiply two fractions, **just multiply the numerators to get the numerator of the product, and multiply the denominators to get the denominator of the product. You can visualize this by starting with a drawing of 23 , then finding 57 of that quantity.**
