This activity is about multiplying fractions.
Multiply these fractions.
|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.
