all you need to do is multiply the numerators together and the denominators together and then simplify if needed. 

Hope that helps! :)

^^^ Yep!

 

Here's a couple examples:

 

\(\frac{4}{5}\times\frac{2}{3}=\frac{4\times2}{5\times3}=\frac{8}{15}\)

 

And

 

\(\frac{3}{4}\times\frac{6}{15}=\frac{3\times6}{4\times15}=\frac{18}{60}\) then reduce \(=\frac{18\div6}{60\div6}=\frac{3}{10}\)

all you have to do is multiply the numeraters by the other numeraters if the denominator is the same...
