# How do you multiply a mixed fraction by a mixed fraction?

One method of multiplying two mixed fractions is to convert them to improper fractions and then multiply the numerators to obtain the new numerator and multiply the denominators to obtain the new denominator. The new improper fraction then can be changed to a mixed fraction. For examples: 1 2/7 x 2 1/5 = 9/7 x 11/5 = 99/35 = 2 29/35. 7 1/2 x 3 1/4 = 15/2 x 13/4 = 195/8 = 24 3/8.

### How do you times mixed fractions?

My strategy for multiplying mixed fractions: what you need to do is turn the mixed number into an improper fraction before you do any thing else. to do that you need to multiply the denominator with the whole number then add the numerator. now that number will be your numerator the denominator stays the same then you do the same to the other mixed fraction turn it into an improper fraction then once both are…

### How do you make a mixed number in to an improper fraction?

The mixed number consists of a whole number and a fraction. Multiply the denominator of the fraction portion by the whole number and to this product add the numerator of the fraction portion. This value is the numerator of the new improper fraction. The denominator of the new improper fraction is the same as the denominator of the original fraction portion of the mixed number.

### How do you multiply mixed fractions by a whole number?

You would turn the mixed number into a fraction by multiplying the whole number(the one in the mixed fraction) by the denominator and then you add the numerator to the product. You would then put that number you get and out it over the denominator. For the other whole number, you would put it over one and multiply the two fractions!

### How do you turn a fraction into a mixed fraction?

you can only turn a fraction to a mixed fraction if the numerator is larger than the denominator and the numerator is divisible wholly by the denominator. for example 45/7 is the fraction and you can turn this to mixed fraction into 6 3/7. look if you multiply 6 by 7 you will get 42. so the whole number is 6 then subtract it from 45 and you will get 3.

### How do you multiply a mixed number with a whole number?

It helps if you change the mixed number into an improper fraction. After you do that you can multiply the improper fraction and the whole number. **hint if you put the whole number over 1 it will make it easier to multiply For example: Multiply 3 and 1/2 by 8 1) change 3 and 1/2 to an improper fraction. It would be 7/2 2) put 8 over one in a fraction. It would be 8/1…

### How do you write a mixed number as an equivalent fraction?

To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply whole number part by the denominator of the fraction part, then add the numerator to the product. The result is the numerator of the improper fraction. The denominator remains the same. For example, to convert 2 3/8 to an improper fraction, multiply 2*8 = 16, then add 3 to get 19. The improper fraction is 19/8.

### What do you do when you are dividing a fraction?

When dividing a fraction you leave the first fraction as it is and you change the second fraction into a reciprocal (flip the fraction). Once you have changed the second fraction into a reciprocal, then you would simply *multiply the two fractions together. Once you multiply the two fractions then that would be your final answer. Dont forget to simplify! And remember if the fractions are mixed numbers before you do anything you must change…

### How do you multiply a fraction by a mixed number?

Ok, so to multiply a fraction by a mixed number, you simply turn the mixed number into a fraction, and then multiply. So for 2 3/4, 2 multiplied by 4 is 8, and 8+3 is 11, so therefore I multiplied the whole number by the denominator (the number on the bottom of the fraction) and added the result to the numerator (the number on the top.) Ok, so now we have 11/3, and if we…

### Multiplying fractions and mixed numbers?

can't do it as is... you must convert the mixed number to an improper fraction to multiply To convert the mixed number to a fraction you multiply the denominator and the number in front and then add that to the numerator then you put that number over the original denominator ex. 2 1/3 = (3 x 2 + 1)/3 =7/3 then you can multiply: 7/3 X 4/5 = 28/15
