How to multiply and fraction steps 1-5

1.multiply numerator and denominator

2.change any mix number into improper fractions Ex: 3    4/8

3.                                                                                                     3 x 8 = 24

4.                                                                                                     24 +4=28

5. your answer would be 24 over 28 and don't forget to reduce

6. so if you reduced your answer would be 6 over 8 and you can not reduce anymore
