## What is Multiplication?

Multiplication is a mathematical operation performed between two numbers to get the third number called product. Multiplication is a repeated addition process and the symbol used to denote the multiplication process is "x". Some of the important terms included in the process of multiplication are as follows

Multiplicand: The number to be multiplied

Multiplier: The number which we multiply

Product: Result obtained from the multiplication of multiplicand and multiplier

The standard form of a multiplication operation is

Multiplicand *Multiplier = Product

### How to multiply fractions?

Want to know how to multiply fractions and reduce them further? Multiplying fractions is completely straightforward. Unlike addition and subtraction, you need not find a common denominator to multiply fractions.

• In a similar way multiply the denominators to get your denominator answer.
• Simplify the fraction to the smallest possible fraction with both numerator and denominator reduced proportionately.

Example

Multiply the fractions 3/5 and 5/8?

Solution:

Given input fractions are 3/5 and 5/8

As per the multiplication of fractions rule, multiply the numerator with other numerator and the denominator with the other denominator, i.e.

(3/5)*(5/8) = (3*5)/(5*8)

= 15/40

If you have more fractions than two the process would be analogical. Multiply all the numerators to get a new numerator and do the same with denominators to get a new denominator. If needed, you can simplify the fraction.
