## Text Solution

What is known?

Fractions

What is unknown?

Product of the given fractions.

Reasoning:

Covert mixed fraction into improper fraction then find the product.

Steps:

(a)

\begin{align}({\rm{i}})\;\frac{1}{2}\,{\rm{ of }}\;2\frac{3}{4}\end{align}

\begin{align}\frac{1}{2}\text{ of }2\frac{3}{4}&=\frac{1}{2}\times 2\frac{3}{4}\0.5mm]&=\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{11}{4}\\[0.5mm]&=\frac{11}{8} \\&\left( \text{improper fraction} \right)\end{align} Converting \begin{align}\frac{{11}}{8}\end{align} into mixed fraction, we get, \[\begin{align}\frac{{11}}{8} = 1\frac{3}{8}\end{align}

\begin{align} {\rm{(ii)}} \;\frac{1}{2}\;{\rm{ of }}\;4\frac{2}{9} \end{align}

\begin{align} \frac{1}{2}\;{\rm{ of }}\;4\frac{2}{9} &= \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{{38}}{9} \0.5mm]&= \frac{{19}}{9}\\&({\text{improper fraction}})\end{align} Converting \begin{align}\frac{{19}}{{9}}\end{align} into mixed fraction, we get, \[\begin{align}\frac{{19}}{9} = 2\frac{1}{9}\end{align}

(b) \begin{align}\frac{5}{8}\;\;{\rm{ of (i) }}\;3\,\frac{5}{6}\quad {\rm{ (ii) }}\;9\frac{2}{3}\end{align}

(i)

\begin{align}\;\frac{5}{8}\;{\rm{ of }}\;3\frac{5}{6} &= \frac{5}{8} \times \frac{{23}}{6} \0.5mm]&= \frac{{115}}{{48}}\\&({\text{improper fraction)}}\end{align} Converting \begin{align}\frac{{115}}{{48}}\end{align} into mixed fraction, we get, \[\begin{align}\frac{{115}}{{48}} = 2\frac{{19}}{{48}}\end{align}

(ii)

\begin{align}\frac{5}{8}\;{\rm{ of }}\;9\frac{2}{3} &= \frac{5}{8} \times \frac{{29}}{3} \0.5mm]&= \frac{{145}}{{24}}\\&({\text{improper fraction}})\end{align} Converting \begin{align}\frac{{145}}{{24}}\end{align} into mixed fraction, we get, \[\begin{align}\frac{{145}}{{24}} = 6\frac{1}{{24}}\end{align}
