To multiply fractions is as easy as following the 3 suggested steps below.
Steps How To Multiply Fractions 
Given two fractions with nonzero denominators 

Step 1: Multiply the numerators together
 This will be the numerator of the "new" fraction.


Step 2: Multiply the denominators together
 This will be the denominator of the "new" fraction.


Step 3: Simplify the resulting fraction by reducing it to lowest term, if needed. 

Before we go over some examples, these are other ways to mean multiplication.
Dot symbol as multiplication operator. 
Parenthesis as multiplication operator. 


Example 1: Multiply the fractions .
Multiply the numerators of the fractions
Similarly, multiply the denominators together.
The resulting fraction after multiplication is already in its reduced form. That becomes our final answer!
Example 2: Multiply the fractions .
Example 3: Multiply the three fractions .
You may encounter a problem where you will be asked to multiply three fractions.
The general idea remains the same just like when you multiply two fractions, as shown in previous examples.
Example 4: Multiply a whole number and a fraction .
When you multiply a whole number to a fraction, think of the whole number as fraction with a denominator of 1. Since
Therefore, we can rewrite the original problem as . With that, it should allow us to multiply the fractions as usual.
Finally, reduce the answer by dividing the numerator and denominator by 5.
Example 5: Multiply .
Solution:
Step 1: Multiply the numerators
5 x 6 = 30
Step 2: Multiply the denominators
3 x 15 = 45
Step 3: Reduce the answer to the lowest term by dividing the top and bottom by the greatest common divisor which is 15.
Example 6: Multiply .
Solution:
Example 7: Multiply .
Solution:
Rewrite the whole number 9 with a denominator of 1.
