Here is the original expression:
 

\(\frac{14}{1}*\frac{7}{12}\)

 

To multiply this, just multiply the numerator and the denominator. Calculate the numerator by doing \(14*7=98\) and calculate the denominator by doing \(1*12=12\).

 

Therefore, you answer becomes

 

\(\frac{98}{12}\)

 

But wait! You are not done yet! You must reduce the fraction to its simplest terms. To do this, calculate the GCF of the numerator and denominator. The GCF happens to be 2. Take that factor out of both the numerator and denominator. 

 

\(\frac{98}{12}\div\frac{2}{2}=\frac{49}{6}=8.1\overline{66666}\)
