Worksheet Overview

This activity is about multiplying fractions.



Multiply these fractions.


4 x 2  
5 8


 4 x 2  = 8  
5 x 8 40

Remember to simplify fractions if they have a common factor. 


In this example, the highest common factor of 8 and 40 is 8 so we can divide both numerator and denominator by 8.



8/40 = 1/5


In this activity, we need to reduce all fractions to their simplified form but leave them as top-heavy, or improper.
