    all u have to do is 4*53. Your remainder is the numerator and the number on the side is your whole number answer.

    but when you have 4(1/3) for example than think about it as addition, so it is 4+1/3

    4 2/9 *9 is the first example

    4 2/9= 4+2/9 (4+2/9)*9=4*9+2=38

    4 2/9= 4+2/9 is this clear?

    ok, so when you write 4 2/9 *9 means that you multiply everything with 9 so it is =(4+2/9)*9 when you multiply a bracket you multiply with every term so 4*9+2/9*9=36+2

    you have to multiply everything with everything (3+3/5)*(2+7/9)= 3*2+3*7/9+3/5*2+3/5*7/9
