Multiplying 2 fractions involves multiplying both numerators divided by both denominators.

Numerator 1 x Numerator 2 | |

Denominator 1 x Denominator 2 |

**Numerator 1** = **3**,**Denominator 1** = **9**,**Numerator 2** = **72**,**Denominator 2** = **1**, so we have:

3 x 72 | |

9 x 1 |

216 | |

9 |

(1/9) x 216 = 24

(1/9) x 9 = 1

Since our reduced answer is a whole number, we remove the one from the denominator and write it as:

Answer = 24

Answer = 24

a/c + b/c = (a + b)/c

a/c - b/c = (a - b)/c

a/c * b/c = ab/c * c

a/b/c/d = ad/bc

Reciprocal of a/b = b/a
