Multiplying Factions
What is
  • 1/2 x 36
  • 1/4 x 36
  • 1/8 x 36
  • 5/8 x 36
  • 5/6 x 40

We can also use clock to multiply fractions. You just figure out what is the value of the given fraction in clock. And then, multiply it to the given number and if it is an improper fraction, make it mix number. Just like this.

We can also use the money method. Just like we did at the clock, but we use the number, 100 rather than 60. It goes like this.

You can also use the ratio table. It goes like this.
