We learned an easier way to multiply mixed fractions. (:

To multiply mixed fractions, you must:

- Change the mixed fraction into an improper fraction
- Multiply Numerators
- Multiply Denominators
- Simplify Fractions

Here are some examples of what we did to multiply mixed fractions:*2 1/6 x 1 3/4*

To multiply the mixed fractions, you must multiply the Denominator by the Whole Number and add the Numerator. **(D x W + N)**

6 X 2 + 1 = 13 = 13/6

4 X 1 + 3 = 7 = 7/4

13/6 X 7/4 = 91/24

The answer is 91/24. We now have to make it a mixed fraction.

This means:

2 1/6 X 1 3/4 = 3 19/24
