To multiply mixed numbers you first have to make them into improper fractions.

So for example if you have the problem 5 6/7x2 3/4 the first thing you have to do is make them into improper fractions and so the new problem will be 41/7x11/4. Now just directly multiply the numerators and the denominators together.

41x11=451

7x4=28

We get our fraction of 451/28.

The last step is to convert the improper fraction back into a mixed number.

451/28 equals 16 3/28.

Now try some of these and make sure to watch the video on YouTube.
