# Why don't you have to find a common denominator when multiplying fractions?

Multiplying fractions is quite different from adding them. You just multiply the numberators and the denominators separately. You can find the common denominator if you like, but in the end (after simplifying), you'll get the same result, and the additional work of finding the common denominator and converting the fractions turns out to be unnecessary. Try it out for some fractions!
