if you have mixed numbers you make them into improper fractions before you multiply

Change the mixed numbers into improper fractions. Multiply and then change back to a mixed number in reduced form as necessary.

You turn the mixed number into an improper fraction then multiply by the reciprocal.

Convert them to improper fractions and proceed the same way you would multiply two fractions.

you have to turn them into improper fractions before you multiply them.

Convert them to improper fractions and proceed. The answer will be positive.

First change the mixed numbers into improper fractions by multiplying the denominator and the whole number and add the product to the numerator in the mixed numbers and then multiply the numerators and the denominators and divide the numerator by the denominator of the product.

The question is ambiguous. Do you want to know how to multiply a fraction by a whole number, as well as by a mixed number? Or are you asking how to multiply a whole number by a mixed number and express the product as a fraction? Or what?

Convert them to improper fractions, invert the second one and proceed to multiply.

Mixed fractions can't become whole numbers.

what is dividing fractions and mixed numebers

Mixed Fractions are fractions that have whole numbers and fractions on the side.If you are trying to change them into improper fractions you take the denominator of the fraction and multiply it by the whole number and keep the same numerator. ex.: 2 and one fourth =

If doing it without a calculator, then convert each mixed fraction into a top-heavy equivalent fraction and then multiply as for fractions.

To get a fraction of another fraction you have to multiply the fractions. To multiply fractions, just use this simple algorithm: Step 1-Turn all whole numbers and mixed numbers into improper fractions. Step 2-Multiply the numerators of the 2 fractions. The answer to that problem will be the numerator of the answer. Step 3-Multiply the denominators of the 2 fractions. The answer to that problem will be the denominator of the answer. Step 4-Reduce.

To combine the fractions or subtract the fractions. Same method with mixed numbers.

You multiply the denominator by the whole number the add the numerator and you keep the denominator the same.

To find the sum of two mixed numbers, turn the mixed numbers into improper fractions (multiply the base with the denominator and add the numerator), then add the two fractions. To add the two fractions, find the LCD (lowest common denominator) and add the two numerators, but leave the denominators the same.

First convert them into improper fractions. And then to multiply multiply both the numerators and the denominators. To divide just take the reciprocal ofthe denomiator anjd then multiply them.

First convert the mixed numbers into "top heavy (or "improper) fractions". Now multiply each of the improper fractions by each other - this makes the denominators the same. Now you can add both the fractions together (and cancel down if necessary).

you would convert the mixed numbers into fractions where the top number is greater than the bottom number, then multiply both the numerator and the denominator by a number that makes the denominators the same.

the same way you always multiply fractions. Change mixed numbers into improper fractions, multiply all numerators to get a new numerator, multiply all denominators to get a new denominator, then reduce the fraction.

Yes.

More than that. You need to multiply the whole number, the farctions AND cross multiply the whole numbers and the fractions. Then add together all the answers. Thus, 23/4 * 56/7 = 2*5 + (3/4*6/7) + 2*6/7 + 3/4*5 Actually, it is far simpler to convert the mixed fractions to improper (top heavy) fractions, and then multiply the numerators together to give the numerator of the answer and multiply the denominators together to give the denominators of the answer.

First you change them into improper fractions. Then you multiply the numerator and the denamanator straight across. ;)
