Multiplying fractions

Multiplying fractions is really quite a simple process where you multiply the numerators (top numbers) of the fractions to get your new numerator and multiply the denominators (bottom numbers) to get your new denominator.

for example:

1/2 x 1/2 = (1 x 1)/ (2 x 2) = 1/4 or a quarter.
