Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0before multiplying: simplify 4/12 which gives you 1/3. Now multiply 1/3 * 2/11 which is (1*2) / (3*11) = 2/33

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or after multiplying: first multiply and get (4*2) / (12*11) = 8/132 and now simplify to 2/33
