You would have to convert the mixed number into a fraction, or you could convert the fraction into a mixed number. The first one is easier in my opinion. For example: 2 3/4 is 11/4.

Converting a fraction into a mixed number is just as easy but it is harder to multiply

To multiply a mixed fraction by a fraction you will need to multiply the denominator (the bottom number of a fraction) by the whole number then add the numerator (the top number of a fraction) and that will be your new numerator. Then multiply the two fractions (straight across). Finally put you final answer in simplest form if needed.
