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...
