In order to understand fraction multiplication thouroughly, we must be able to work simultaneously with different wholes using examples 3/5*3/4, explain why this is so. What are the different wholes that are associated with the fractions in the problem 3/5*3/4(including the answer to the problem?
Please help.
Can you state the problem exactly as it is written? I think you mean what whole numbers do you multiply together in the fractions (numerators and denominators) to obtain the product, which is itself a fraction made up of a whole number numerator and denominator. Right?
