Multiply all numerators to get numerator of the product. Multiply all denominators to get denominator of the product. This is true whether the factors have like or unlike denominators.

unlike denominators: the bottom number of a fraction. to have unlike denominators you must have two fractions with a different number on the bottom of each fraction.

Unlike. Unlike. Unlike. Unlike.

multiply the denominators

Actually you don't need to have a same denominator to multiply fractions. Just simply multiply across the numerators and the denominators. For example: 1/3 x 2/5= 1x2/3x5=2/15.

If the denominators are not the same, then you have to use equivalent fractions which do have a common denominator . To do this, you need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators.

you have to multiply numerators and denominators because whatever you do to the bottom you have to do to the top

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.
