The dissimilarity of the fractions doesn't matter. To multiply two fractions, multiply the numerators together, then the denominators, then put the new numerator over the new denominator. Simplify if you can. To divide fractions, invert the second fraction and multiply as just described.

I assume you mean, with different denominators. If you want to add the fractions, subtract them, or compare them (determine which one is greater), you have to convert them to similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first. Converting to similar fractions is not necessary, and usually doesn't even help, if you want to multiply or divide fractions.
