U can multiply

When doing fractions, you may cross multiply.

To multiply fractions all you do is multiply the numerators and the denominators separately eg: 4/7 x 6/11 = 24/77. The "commonality" of denominators has no relevance.

To divide fractions, turn the second one over - that is, swap its numerator and denominator - and multiply. Nothing else is necessary. You cross multiply when you have a proportion, that is when you have two ratios that are equal.

if youre dealing with fractions then you multiply top by top and bottom by bottom then simplify
