To be called a complex fraction, either the numerator, the denominator, or both, are fractions (or contain fractions).

You can order fractions by finding the percentage (top divided by bottom multiplied by 100).

They are fractions.

You divide fractions by fractions by multiplying by the inverse. For instance, 1/3 divided by 3/4 is the same as 1/3 multiplied by 4/3, which is 4/9.

When multiplying fractions, the numerators (top numbers) are multiplied together and put as the numerator over the denominators (bottom numbers) multiplied together.When adding fractions, they must both have the same denominator - the fractions are made into equivalent fractions with a common denominator; then the numerators are added together and put over the same common denominator.In both cases of multiplication and addition, the resulting fractions are reduced to simplest form.

Multiply top and bottom by the complex conjugate of the bottom complex number; this will make the bottom complex number into a real number which can then be made into fractions and simplified with the real part and the imaginary part (the multiplier of i [√-1]) of the multiplied out top number.

They could be fractions in which the numerator or the denominator, or both, are complex numbers.

No. Dividing fractions is achieved by inverting the divisor and multiplying the resulting fractions. To multiply fractions the numerators are multiplied together to form the new numerator and the denominators are multiplied together to form the new denominator.

"Regular" fractions have integers for the numerator and denominator. Complex fractions have fractions at one or both of those spots.

It is not: they are the same. A "product" and "multiple" are synonyms.

It's because decimals are really fractions and all numbers get smaller when you multiply them by fractions.

The product of two fractions is equal to the two numerators multiplied together divided by the two denominators multiplied together. (a/x) * (b/y) = (a * b) / (x * y)
