^What he said...
I actually find multiplying fractions a lot less tricky than adding or subtracting them.

And if you invert it then you are dividing :D

Wait a sec. what was the question to which your answer was 3/6
?

Yes. Let's have another one:
\[\frac{4}{3}\times\frac{9}{4}\]

2? How do you figure 2?

twitch

well if you do 36>18>9>3>1
12>6>>2 oh i see

twitch
Best Response

so it be 1/2 right

NO...
Remember that in the end, fractions are just compact division:
\[\large \frac{a}{b}=a \div b\]
So what is 36 divided by 12?

twitch

3

And there is your answer.

twitch

so the answer is flat out 3

zugzwang

Yes. Remember that this can happen. Anyway, a whole number is technically a fraction with a denominator of 1, in lowest terms.

twitch
Best Response

so if i wanted to make it into fraction form id just 3/1
