    \[\frac ab\times\frac cd=\frac{a\times c}{b\times d}\]

    \[\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } \times \frac{ 1}{ 2 } = \frac{ 3 \times 1 }{ 2 \times 2 }\]

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

    Provided you have mastered reducing fractions to lowest terms.

    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?

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

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