    "Multiplying a fraction by an integer follows the same rules as multiplying two fractions. An integer can be considered to be a fraction with a denominator of 1. Therefore when a fraction is multiplied by an integer the numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the integer. The denominator is multiplied by 1 which does not change the denominator."
