Follow the steps to learn simple fraction multiplication with unlike denominators.

- Multiply the numerators.
- Multiply the denominators.
- Simplify the result.

Now solve the exercise from the given worksheet.

**Multiplying Harder Fractions with Unlike Denominators **

This method is slightly harder than the previous method. But you can use the same steps to solve these problems.

**Proper Fractions with Unlike Denominators Multiplication**

Before solving the worksheet, we need to know that a proper fraction is a fraction with a larger denominator than its numerator. The students will follow the same process for solving the multiplication of proper fractions with unlike denominators.

**Multiplying Improper Fractions with Unlike Denominators**

Before solving the worksheet, we need to know that an improper fraction is a fraction with a smaller denominator than its numerator.

The students will follow the same process for solving the multiplication of improper fractions with unlike denominators.

**Multiplying Mixed Numbers**

**A full number and a certain fraction** are combined to form a mixed number or mixed fraction.

- First, convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions.
- Multiply both the numerators and denominators.
- Convert the improper fraction into a mixed number.

**Multiplying Mixed Numbers and Fractions**

In this method, convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions. Then help your kids solve the multiplication worksheet.

**Multiplication of Fractions Cross Canceling **

Cross-cancellation is a shortcut for making fractions easier to multiply.

- Identify common factors between numerators and denominators.
- Cancel out these common factors to simplify the fractions.
- Multiply the remaining numerators together and the remaining denominators together to get the final product.

**Fractions Multiplication with Whole Numbers**

**When you want to multiply a whole number and a fraction, multiply the numerators only**. Then simplify the fraction if needed.

**Multiplication of More Than Two Fractions of Unlike Denominators**

Now it’s time to multiply more than two fractions.

- First, multiply the numerators.
- Then multiply the denominators.
- If they need to simplify the fraction, they will simplify the end result.
