When you multiply fractions together, you multiply the numerators together to get the numerator of the answer and you multiply the denominators together to get the denominator of the answer. For example:

1/2 * 2/3 = (1*2)/(2*3) = 2/6 = 1/3.

When multiplying exponents of the same base together, you simply add the two exponents and make that the exponent of the same base. For example:

22 * 23 = 25 = 32.

Or for the algebra-savvy:

x2 * x3 = x5.
