Multiply the numerator by the numerator, and the denominator by the denominator. If you find this explanation unclear, take this example:

9/8 (improper fraction) x 3/4 (simple fraction) = 27/32 (answer)---if you can simplify it, do so.

If it is a mixed number (e.g. 1 3/4), change the mixed number to an improper fraction and follow the steps above. The same applies to simple fraction multiplying by simple fraction.
