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!

I dont know

You dont really, well at least in my years of knowledge

exactly you got it you dont need help :)

To simplify improper fractions you just have to simplify as you would with a regular fraction. Which is very easy, and if you dont know I will tell you how. How to Simplify Fractions: Divide the numerator and the denominator by a common factor. Example: 2/4=1/2 (2 is the common factor in both 4 and 2)

The least common denominator for 3 and 4 is 12. if u dont belive us try it in your notebook

Multiply the denominator by the big number on the right, then divide by the numerator. Put the value you get over the original denominator. Once you've dont that, divide the new numerator by the original denominator and there you go!

NO AND I DONT THANK IT IS I CON TELL U RIGHT KNOW no..

120

I dont know the answer

they dont

example: 3/4+3/8=? First find a common multiple: 8 then make sure the denominator for each is 8. To do that for the first fraction you have to multiply the denominator by 2...and whatever you do to the denominator you have to do to the numerator. so you multiply the 3 also. 3/4=6/8 since the denominator for the second fraction is already 8, you dont do anything to it/it stays the same! add across and the new equation is: 6/8+3/8=9/8 Hope it helped!

that they dont looks like them
