Fractions

As you all know part of a whole is known as a fraction. The top number is called the numerator and the bottom one is called the denominator. For example, it is a fraction with 2 as numerator and 3 as the denominator.

To multiply two or more fractions, we multiply all the numerators of the given fractions together and write the answer as the numerator of the resulting fraction. Similarly, we multiply all the denominators of the given fractions together and write the answer as the denominator of the resulting fraction.
