In this case,Multiplying 2 fractions involves multiplying both numerators divided by both denominators.

Numerator 1xNumerator 2Denominator 1xDenominator 2

8 x 5 | |

9 x 6 |

40 | |

54 |

Now that we have our preliminary answer, we need to reduce it down as much as possible.

From our GCF Calculator, we see that the highest number that reduces 40 and 54 down to an integer is 2.

This number, 2, is called our Greatest Common Factor (GCF), and will be used to reduce both numerator and denominator as seen below.

Reducing the numerator gives us: (1/2) x 40 = 20

Reducing the denominator gives us: (1/2) x 54 = 27

Answer = | 20 |

27 |

20/27

- 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
