# Multiplying Fractions: Example 12

## Topic

Fraction Operations

## Description

This example demonstrates the concept of multiplying fractions. The image shows two fractions being multiplied together, illustrating how the numerators and denominators are handled separately. The concept is demonstrated by numerically showing the multiplication process, which involves multiplying the numerators together to get the new numerator and the denominators together to get the new denominator. Specific skills involved include understanding fraction multiplication rules, simplifying fractions, and converting improper fractions to mixed numbers. This example helps solidify the understanding that the product of two fractions is another fraction, often smaller than the original fractions, unless they are improper fractions. The example may also include visual aids like fraction bars or circles to help conceptualize the multiplication process.
