Multiplying Fractions by Whole Numbers:
- When any fractions either proper or improper are multiplied with a whole number, the numerators are multiplied with whole number and the denominator will remains the same.
- In generalise form, fraction and whole number ‘c’
of c =
In this question ‘of’ means to multiply
When any fractions either proper or improper are multiplied with a whole number, the numerators are multiplied with whole number and the denominator will remains the same.
So, of 6
HCF of 18 and 12 is 6
Since, both numerator and denominator are divide by their HCF i.e,
So, the answer is
Multiplying Fractions by Fractions:
- When any fractions either proper or improper are multiplied, the numerators are multiplied with each other and the denominators are multiplied with each other.
- Product of Fractions =
- In generalise form, for any two fractions and
Find the product of
Product of Fractions =
Hence, product of =
Multiplying Mixed Fractions with Fractions
- When a mixed fraction is multiplied by a proper or improper fraction, convert mixed fraction into improper fraction and then multiply them.
In order to multiply a Mixed Fraction with a Improper/ Proper Fraction, we first convert mixed Fraction into Improper Fraction , and then multiply it with the Improper/Proper Fraction
Converting Mixed Fraction into an Improper Fraction =
Multiplying the Improper Fraction obtained by conversion of Mixed Fraction, with given Fraction
Converting the result into Simplest form
HCF of 24 and 14 is 2
