Today is class we learned about

__multiplying fractions__, I did the first half of questions and Mae did the second half. Well here are some of the questions
Oh and I apologize in advance if you can't see my pictures.

In order to solve this question you will need to follow the steps..

Step 1: Use the "elevator" method, which is using reciprocals, If you don't know what that is, here's a website that will explain what they are.

Step 2: You multiply the second fraction to make one, to do that you need to use reciprocals.

Step 3: Whatever you multiply to the bottom you also have to do to the top!

Step 4: You then multiply those numbers and you should be able to get your answer.

Step 5: You also can estimate if your answer is going to be

__. If your top fraction is greater than your bottom fraction then your answer if going to be__

**greater than 1 or less than 1**__greater than 1__, but if your bottom fraction is greater than your top fraction then it's probably

__less than one.__

For this question you repeat the same steps as above BUT there's one more step to this.

The extra step is to

__change__the mixed number into a improper fraction.

If you still don't understand, Here's a video that might help you, This website might help also!

__My test corrections__In the test I forgot to write the word question and I didn't know how to draw the pictures but now I do! hope my pictures could help!
