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.
