No.

No.

You do not need to.

to do fractions, to multiply divisions

multiply and divide fractions!-.-

one-sixth

You DO need a common denominator to add, subtract, or compare fractions. You DO NOT need a common denominator to multiply or divide fractions.

No, you cannot use models to multiply fractions!!

You multiply the fractions

Yes you do.

When you divide by fractions, you invert and multiply.

No. Fractions don't need the same denominator in order to multiply them. The numerator of their product is simply the product of their numerators, and the denominator of their product is just the product of their denominators.

When you add or subtract fractions you cross multiply and when you multiply or divide fractions you across multiply.

No! You can multiply fractions without common denominators. For example: 2/4 + 7/1 Multiply straight across. The answer is then 14/4 or 3.5

You have to find a common denominator, multiply them, subtract them and then simplify if you need to.

yes. you multiply the numerator and denominator

Yes. You need common denominators if you want to:Add fractionsSubtract fractionsCompare fractions ("which is larger?")You do not need common denominators to multiply or divide fractions. Thus, in the case of fractions, multiplication and division is actually easier than addition and subtraction.

The dissimilarity of the fractions doesn't matter. To multiply two fractions, multiply the numerators together, then the denominators, then put the new numerator over the new denominator. Simplify if you can. To divide fractions, invert the second fraction and multiply as just described.

exactly you got it you dont need help :)

Yes.

Yes, there are times when you multiply fractions.

For subtracting and adding you cannot add or subtract unalike things. For multiplication and division you can multiply by whatever you want. In some maths you even multiply by variables such as "x". Or divide by them.

It depends on the specific problem. If you have an equation that involves fractions, quite often you'll need to multiply them.

you do not do that

yes
