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?

to multiply fractions add them together and reduce the final fraction. to multiply mixed numbers, first make the mixed number an improper fraction, by mulitplying the whole number and the denominator and adding the answer to the numerator. Example: The improper fraction 8/5 can be changed to the mixed number 1 3/5 by dividing the numerator (8) by the denominator (5). This gives a quotient of 1 and a remainder of 3. The remainder is placed over the divisor (5).

can't do it as is... you must convert the mixed number to an improper fraction to multiply To convert the mixed number to a fraction you multiply the denominator and the number in front and then add that to the numerator then you put that number over the original denominator ex. 2 1/3 = (3 x 2 + 1)/3 =7/3 then you can multiply: 7/3 X 4/5 = 28/15

turn the whole number into an inproper fraction by doing this: multiply it by the denominator of the fraction.that answer is your numerator make the fractions denominator the whole number's denominator.then subtract just the numerators.you should have an improper fraction as your final answer, so turn that into a mixed number.

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.

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 =

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 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.

Mixed fractions can't become whole numbers.

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