### Multiply the Fractions - Worksheet # 1 (Answers on 2nd Page of PDF)

Each worksheet has a variety of fractions all with a common (same) denominator. When multiplying fractions, simply multiply the numerator (top number) then multiply the denominator (bottom number) and reduce to its lowest term if needed. **Example 1:** 1/4 x 3/4 = 3/16 (1 x 3 on top and 3 x 4 on bottom) in this example the fraction cannot be reduced further.

**Example 2: ** 1/3 x 2/3 = 2/9 This cannot be reduced further.

**Example 3: ** 1/6 x 2/6 = 2/36 In this case, the fraction can be reduce further. Both numbers can be divided by 2 which gives us 1/18 which is the reduced answer.
