In order to multiply fractions with variables, factor all numerators and denominators completely. Use the rules for multiplying and dividing fractions, cancel any common factors, and leave your final answer in factored form.

Why do you need a common denominator when adding and subtracting fractions but not when you multiply or divide fractions?
