    But you can do "canceling" which makes the problem easier notice that \[ \frac{10}{21} \cdot \frac{3}{5} = \frac{10\cdot 3}{21 \cdot 5} \] but you know (right?) that 10 * 3 is the same as 3*10, so you could write this as \[ \frac{3\cdot 10}{21 \cdot 5} = \frac{3}{21} \cdot \frac{10}{5}\] you can divide top and bottom by 3 to simplify 3/21 to 1/7 and simplify 10/5= 2 so the problem is \[ \frac{1}{7}\cdot \frac{2}{1} = \frac{2}{7} \]

    but 3/9 is 1/3 so 3/4 x 7/9 is the same as 3/9 x 7/4 = 1/3 x 7/4
