  # Multiply Fractions

In this worksheet, students will practise multiplying fractions. Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Four Operations for All Numbers

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about multiplying fractions.

Example

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.
