**How To Multiply Fractions With 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. To add them, first you will have to make their denominator equal.

Factor all the numbers in order to easily reduce (simplify) the end fraction. To add them, first you will have to make their denominator equal. 1/4 x 3/4 = 3/16 (1 x 3 on top and 3 x 4 on bottom) in this example the fraction cannot be reduced further.

### Reverse The Numerator And Denominator Of The Second Fraction And Change The Division Sign To A Multiplication Sign.

Multiply the denominators step 3: If your answer is greater than 1, you may want to write your answer as a mixed number. It doesn’t matter if these numbers are different in the problem because the steps to find the denominator are the same.

### In The Case Of Mixed Fractions, Simplify It.

Reduce (simplify) fractions to their lowest terms equivalents: And then you have 3 times 1 in the denominator. Then, the product of fractions is obtained in p/q form.

### 1/4 X 3/4 = 3/16 (1 X 3 On Top And 3 X 4 On Bottom) In This Example The Fraction Cannot Be Reduced Further.

When multiplying fractions, simply multiply the numerator (top number) then multiply the denominator (bottom number) and reduce to its lowest term if needed. For example 1/2 = 2/4 = 3/6 = 15/30 = 47/94 now suppose you have two fractions 1/2 and 1/3. To multiply fractions, first simply the fraction to its lowest term.

### Multiply Or Divide The Numerator And Denominator By The Same Number.

It doesn’t matter if these numbers are the same or different in the problem because the steps to find the denominator are the same. Multiply the top numbers of both fractions together to get the numerator (top number) of your new fraction. It may be possible to simplify it (reduce it to lower terms).

### The Numerator And Denominator Have No Common Prime Factors.

A short video showing you how to multiply a set of fractions with the same denominator, step by step Multiplying fractions is as easy as 1, 2, 3! For example, if you’re trying to solve 2/3 × 3/4, you’d multiply 2 by 3 and get 6.
