12/5
Answer: 12  5 = 2 2/5
14/8
Answer: 14  8 = 1 6/14
Simplify: 1 3/7
Step 1: Change the mixed numbers to improper
fractions.
2: Cross reduce using the GCF of the
diagonal numbers.
3: Multiply the Numerators.
4: Multiply the Denominators.
5: Write the answer as a mixed number.
NEVER MULTIPLY THE WHOLE NUMBERS AND
THE FRACTIONS! Always change it to an improper
fraction.
