1
FRACTIONS MULTIPLICATION
2
What is a Fraction?
  • When a whole thing is divided into 4 equal parts
    it is a fraction. It has two parts numerator and
    denominator.

3
Example
  • Consider a cake .
  • When cut into two equal parts, the fraction of
    each part is 1 / 2
  • 1 part of the whole you have
  • 2 Total parts

4
Example
  • When the cake is cut into 4 equal parts, the
    fraction of each part would be 1 / 4.
  • 1 part of the whole you have
  • 2 Total parts

5
Fractions in Real Life
  • Fractions are used in real life examples.
  • What is the amount of milk you buy daily? In
    Liters, half , 1/4 liters
  • Hence, fractions and arithmetic operatins in
    fractions are important to know.

How to Multiply Fractions?
  • You ate 1/2 of 1 1/2 x 1
  • Consider an example, your father bought a cake.
  • 1)You ate half part of the cake and left the
    remaining.
  • 2) Yours sister and parents ate 1/3 of the
  • remaining cake.

You ate 1/3 of 1/2 1/3 x 1/2
8
Solution
  • Just multiply the numerators and denominators
    separately.
  • 1/2 x 1/1 1 / 2
  • 1/3 x 1/2 1 / 6

9
Complex Fractions Multiplication
  • Multiply 2 / 8 of 3 / 2
  • 2 x 3 / 8 x 2
  • 6 / 16
  • Now this equation can be simplified.
  • 6 divided by 2
  • 16 divided by 2
  • 3 / 8
  • Another way,
  • 2 x 3 3
    / 8
  • 8 x 2
