## TOOL: MULTIPLYING FRACTIONS CALCULATOR

#### MULTIPLYING FRACTIONS CALCULATOR

Enter the numerators and denominators.

SOLUTION

Convert the improper fraction to a mixed number.

SOLUTION STEPS

● Multiply the numerators and write the result to the numerator of the product. Multiply the denominators and write the result to the denominator of the product.

$\mathrm{\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}15}{\color{#3a5998}-16} \times \dfrac{\color{chocolate}10}{\color{chocolate}3}}$ $\mathrm{=\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}15\color{black}\times\color{chocolate}10}{(\color{#3a5998}-16\color{black})\times\color{chocolate}3}}$ $\mathrm{=\dfrac{150}{-48}}$

$\mathrm{\dfrac{150}{-48}=-\dfrac{150}{48}}$

● Simplify the result.

$\mathrm{-\dfrac{\bcancel{150}^{25}}{\bcancel{48}^{8}}=-\dfrac{25}{8}}$

● Convert the improper fraction to a mixed number.

$\mathrm{-\dfrac{25}{8}=-\color{olive}3\color{black}\dfrac{\color{olive}1}{\color{olive}8}}$
