## How Does Multiplying Fractions Calculator Work?

Multiplying fractions is simpler than adding or subtracting them. The steps to multiply fractions are as follows:

**Step 1:**Check if the given fractions are either proper or improper fractions. If yes, proceed to step 3 otherwise go to step 2.**Step 2:**If any of the given fractions is a mixed fraction of the form, [ \(X\tfrac{y}{z}\)], then we have to convert it into an improper fraction. This can be done by using the formula \(X\tfrac{y}{z}\) = \(\frac{zX + y}{z}\).**Step 3:**Say our first fraction is given by A / B and the second fraction is C / D.**Step 4:**Multiply the numerators (A × C). Write the resultant value above the bar or "/" sign.**Step 5:**Multiply the denominators (B × D). Write the resultant value below the bar.**Step 6:**Simplify the resultant fraction [(A × C) / (B × D)] to the lowest terms. This will give us the product of the two fractions.

## Solved Examples on Multiplying Fractions Calculator

**Example 1:**

Multiply 2/3 × 6/7 and verify the result using the online multiplying fractions calculator.

**Solution:**

Multiply the numerators: 2 × 6 = 12

Multiply the denominators: 3 × 7 = 21

The product is = 12/21 which is simplified as = 4/7

Therefore, the product of 2/3 and 6/7 is 4/7

**Example 2:**

Multiply 4.2/9 × 15/6.3 and verify the result using the online multiplying fractions calculator.

**Solution:**

Multiply the numerators: 4.2 × 15 = 63

Multiply the denominators: 9 × 6.3 = 56.7

The product is = 63/56.7 which is simplified as = 10/9

Therefore, the product of 4.2/9 and 15/6.3 is 10/9

Now, use the multiplying fractions calculator and multiply the following fractions:

- 16.2/9.9 × 7.1/8
- 33/50 × 10/ 22
