** How to multiply fractions?**

Multiplying fractions is not rocket science, believe us. You only need to know how to multiply numbers and how to simplify fractions!

Let's say you have two fractions, 3/5 and 5/8. How to multiply these fractions?

3/5 * 5/8 = ?

Multiply the numerator by the other numerator and the denominator by the other denominator:

3/5 * 5/8 = (3 * 5)/(5 * 8)= 15/40

If you had more fractions than two, the process would be analogical: multiply all numerators together to make a new numberator, and do the same with the denominators to get a new denominator.

If needed, simplify a fraction:

15/40 = 3/8

To make a reduction, find greatest common factor of the numerator and denominator, and divide them by that value.

** Multiplying a fraction by a whole number**

Let's analyze another example: the multiplication of the fraction 7/8 by 13, which is a whole number, of course.

Pick the type of fraction from the drop-down list. Choose mixed form, as you'll need the whole fraction part.

Enter the fractions:

The first numerator is 7, and the denominator is 8 (the whole part is left empty)

In the whole part of second fraction, enter 13 and leave the fractional part empty

The multiplying fractions calculator displays the result: 91/8, which is 11 3/8 in its mixed number form.
