Multiplying fractions can be difficult. A fraction is a division of two numbers. The number above the scoreline is called the numerator and the number below the scoreline is the denominator. With the multiplication of fractions you multiply the numerators and the denominators with each other, for example:

^{2}⁄_{5} **x** ^{1}⁄_{4} = ^{2}⁄_{20} which is ^{1}⁄_{10}.

The fraction calculator simplifies the result of the multiplication of the fractions automatically to the simplest form in which the numerator and denominator are as small as possible. Use the fraction calculator to practice multiplying fractions or to check your answers.
