## Your Questions About How Do You Multiply Fractions

Jenny asks…

## How do you multiply fractions by cancellation?

…I need a thorough explanation for **how** can I **multiply** **fractions** by cancellation?

For ex.: 8/10 x 9/16

**How** **do** **you** **multiply** **fractions** by using the process of cancellation? Thank **you**!

### admin answers:

Oh, this will make calculations so much easier! It sounds confusing, but it’s easy when you walk through an example.

It’s the same as reducing a fraction to lowest terms: Divide the numerator and denominator by common factors.

8/10 ×9/16 = (8×9)/(10×16)

8 is a factor of the 8 in the numerator and the 16 in the denominator. Divide them both by 8:

= (1×9)/(10×2)

= 9/20

It’s also a lot easier to understand when the fractions can be written vertically.

Helen asks…

## How do you multiply fractions?

**How** **do** **you** **multiply** **fractions**, right now im unable to think because of stress.

### admin answers:

Multiply them digits, ignoring the “point”s, just like you would multiply any regular integer. For example:

0.12 x 0.06 would first give you 72 (12 times 6, just like that).

Now you count how many digits, in total in your original factors, are there after the “point”.

In this case, we have four. 1 and 2 in the first factor. 0 and 6 in the second factor.

Therefore, you will need four digits after the “point” in your result.

We only have 2 digits in the result – 72. So, we need to two zeros before them.

That gives you the result: 0.0072!

Nancy asks…

## How do you multiply fractions that have different denominaters?

example: 1/3 x 1/2 and also **how** **do** **you** **multiply** mixed numbers with **fractions** Example 5 1/3 x 3/4

**How** can **you** answer this problem 3/4 x 4/3

### admin answers:

The same way you’d multiply any two fractions. The denominators don’t have to match in order for fractions to be multiplied or divided; only when added or subtracted.

For the mixed numbers, convert them to improper fractions first, THEN multiply.

David asks…

## How do you multiply and divide fractions by fractions,mixed numbers and whole numbers?

Please Help! I know Math Geniuses are out there. Can **you** **do** step by step explaining

Multiplying **fractions**

Dividing **fractions**

Multplying and Dividing **Fractions** by Whole Numbers.

Dumb it down as much as **you** can!

THANKS!

### admin answers:

To multiply you basically multiply across

like

1/2 x1/2 the top of the answer is 1 x1 ( the tops of the numbers)

then the bottom is multiplied like so 2×2 so the answer is 1/4

if you are divided 1/2 by 1/2 then you leave the first number ( 1/2) then you switch the top and bottom on the second number ( so now the 1/2 is 2/1) now you just act like it is a new multiplication problem( 1/2 x 2/1) again you just multiply the tops by the tops and the bottoms by the bottoms

to multiply by a mixed fraction you just change it into a fraction how to do this is you take the whole number and multiply by the bottom of the fraction and then add it to the top for example 1 2/4 you take 1 x 4and then add 2 keep the same denominator or bottom number it should be 6/4

whole numbers are just fractions all whole numbers r over one like 2 is 2/1 and 3 is 3/1

Laura asks…

## How do you multiply fractions with multiple variables and exponents?

This is my problem:

(x^10)………………..9(x^2)(y^2)

3(y^4) multiplied by (x^4)(y^3)

(There is no line between them, but they are both **fractions**.)

Let me try to explain that better

(x^10) / (3y^4) X (9(x^2)(y^2)) / (x^4)(y^3)

### admin answers:

(x^10) / (3y^4) X (9(x^2)(y^2)) / (x^4)(y^3)

You multiply the two tops of the fractions together and you multiply the two bottoms (denominator) of the fractions together:

= 9[x^10*x^2*y^2] / 3[y^4*x^4y^3] Factored the 9 and the 3, so we simplify to:

= 3[x^10*x^2*y^2] / [y^4*x^4y^3]

Now lets fix the variables with different powers. Remember the rule of powers: x^a * x^b = x^(a+b)

=3[x^12 * y^2] / [y^7 * x^4]

Now its time to divide out the variables that are present on both sides of the fraction, remember the rule here: x^a / x^b = x^(a-b)

= 3[x^8] / [y^5]

Tada we’re done!

## Your Questions About How Do You Take A Screenshot

Linda asks…

## How Do you take a screenshot of the computer on an HP ?

i got an HP for christmas and im trying to figure out **how** to **take** **screenshot**‘s of the computer screen.

i have an HP. so **how** **do** i **do** it? i tryed ctrl alt & prt screen.. then trying to paste it on paint. but it didnt work…. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!

**do** i press all of those buttons or is it like all one button?

:p

### admin answers:

You can take a screenshot by pressing the “prt sc” button on your computers keyboard. If you have a laptop, it might be squished into a double function key where the letters appear under another key. If this is the case, you’ll have to press Fn and prt sc at the same time. This puts the picture in your clipboard so you can go to Paint and press crt+v. You can also download screen capture programs that offer a lot more features like only taking a picture of a certain window and stuff, just google screen capture software.

## Your Questions About How Do You Find The Area Of A Circle

Carol asks…

## How do you find area of a circle with circumference?

**how** **do** u **find** **area** **of** **a** **circle** using circumference for example 18.84 units is **the** circumference.

### admin answers:

Divide the circumference by PI (approximately 3.14159) to get the diameter. Then divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius. Then the area is equal to PI times (radius squared). Usually stated as A = PI*r^2.

Thomas asks…

## I have to do this matth packet but im totally brain dead. How do you find Area and Circumfrence of a circle???

**The** thing i need to **find** is **a** **circle** with **a** Diameter **of** 10. I think thats what it is. Its **a** **circle** with **a** line going across like this: ——– and above **the** line, it says 10 cm

### admin answers:

Area of a Circle = pi x r^2

the radius is 1/2 the diameter so your radius is 5 cm

Area = pi x (5cm)^2

= pi x 25 cm^2

= 78.5 cm^2

The circumference is equal to 2 x pi x r

or

C = 2 x pi x 5cm

= 31.4 cm

you can use 3.14 as a value for pi in these problems

Nancy asks…

## How do u make a formula for finding the area and preimeter of a regular octagon circumscribd around a circle?

Radius **of** **circle** is r,

Formula has to include what **you** did with **circle** to **find** **Area** and preimeter **of** **circle**

### admin answers:

The octagon can be divided into 16 right triangles with apex angle = 22.5°. For each triangle:

base = r·tan(22.5°)

height = r

area = (½)r²·tan(22.5°)

area of octagon = 16·(area of triangle)

= 8r²·tan(22.5°)

perimeter of octagon = 16·(base of triangle)

= 16r·tan(22.5°)

Sharon asks…

## how do you find area of a circle?

**the** question is **the** **area** **of** **a** **circle** is 25pi **find** **the** length **of** **the** radius.

**a**=pr^

can anyone explain it?

### admin answers:

Area of a circle (A) = pi r^2

Find r:

Solve A = pi r^2 for A:

A = pi r^2

r^2 = A/pi

r = sqrt(A/pi)

A = 25pi

r = sqrt(25pi/pi)

r = sqrt(25)

r = 5

Helen asks…

## How do you find the area of a circle with the middle as square shape?

Ok, so **you** have to **find** **the** **area** **of** **the** shaded shape which is **the** **circle**.**The** **circle** has **a** radius **of** 4cm and **the** squares’ (which is in **the** middle **of** **the** **circle**) length is 4×4. Please help me, It’s due for Monday.

### admin answers:

Use the formula πr^2 to find the circle.

π x (4)^2 = 50.27

The area of the square can be found by 4 x 4 = 16

subtract both of them to find the shaded area.

50.27 – 16 = 34.27
