MULTIPLY FRACTIONS Question 1

A fraction is written as:
numerator
denominator


1  x  1  =
2      2
Step 1:To multiply fractions we cross-multiply, and can write the following:
1 x 1
2 x 2
Step 2: Now, we can multiply the 2 numbers in the numerator and in the denominator of our new fraction and we get the following:
1
4
Step 3: As a proof of our answer we can say:
1 = 2
2    4
1  x  2  = 1
2      4     4
Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a new fraction.
1  x  1  = 1
2      2     4
