Marielou's Fraction Growing Post 2

Number 1

Number 2
When you multiply fractions, you multiply the numerator times the numerator and the denominator times the denominator.
for example:
1/3 x 1/5= 2/15
the answer is 2/15, because you have to multiply the numerators and the denominators.
1x1=2 and 3x5= 15
Number 3
this website helps explain how to multiply fractions. it explains it in and easy way and also shows you how to use cross reduction to make your question easier . when you under stand, they give you a couple of questions, and you can try to answer them. i hope this helps! =)

Number 4
when you divide fractions you just have to flip over the second fraction (put the numerator where the denominator is and the denominator where the numerator is) , then multiply.
for example:
1/2 divided by 2/3=3/4
because you have to "flip" the second fraction, then multiply. so 1/2 divided by 2/3 would become 1/2 x 3/2, then simply multiply.
its juss like harbeck said "yours is not to reason why, just invert and multiply"
now for my picture....... dont rly know how to out in a picture, but i understand how to divide it... heheh ohkay here i go.....
