You multiply the numerators of both fractions, and place the result in the numerator of the result. Similarly, the denominator of the result is the product of the denominators of the individual fractions. For example:

2/3 x 3/7 = (2x3) / (3x7) = 6/21

You can simplify the result in the usual way. However, it is usually simpler to simplify before doing the actual multiplication. In the above example, you can cancel (eliminate) the 3 in the numerator with the 3 in the denominator before doing the actual multiplication.
