Best Answer

you don't do anything. you just multiply it together unless on the numerator

you can reduce it with one of the denominators.

=================================

On the remote chance that perhaps you find the first answer unclear,

here's another explanation:

To multiply two fractions:

-- Multiply their numerators. That product is the numerator of the answer.

-- Multiply their denominators. That product is the denominator of the answer.

-- Now you have the answer. It may be possible to simplify it (reduce it to lower terms).

It's not necessary for the original two fractions to have the same denominator.

Just follow the same two easy steps to multiply the fractions, whether their

denominators are the same or different.

When do you add fractions when baking?

In order to add fractions, they must have the same denominators. If the fractions you wish to add do not already have the same denominators, they can be made to do so by finding the right number by which to multiply both the numerator and the denominator of each fraction. To find this number, multiply all the distinct denominators together, then multiply both the numerator and denominator of each fraction by a number found by the dividing the product of the distinct denominators by the denominator of the particular fraction concerned. All the fractions will then have the same denominator. Add the numerators of such fractions together to find the numerator of the sum; its denominator will be the one common to all the fractions.


How do you change a fraction so they have the same denominator?

First, find a common denominator for the two (or more) fractions. Then, for each fraction, multiply numerator and denominator by the same number (different numbers for different fractions, though), to convert to the common denominator.

When doing fractions why is it easier to multiply and divide fractions than add and substract fractions?

It is easier to multiply or divide fractions than to add or subtract fractions because in multiplication, you just have to multiply the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator. Same applies with division of fractions, except that you have to reciprocate the fraction you're dividing with (divisor) then proceed to multiplication. Whereas, in addition and subtraction of fractions, you still have to get their Least Common Denominator (LCD).


What are fractions that have the same denominator called?
