    Okay, so this is how I do it. I do not think of it as fraction - I think of it as a regular equation: (4/5) * (10/9) I know 4 divided by 5 is 0.8 I know 10 divided by 9 is 1.1111111 Now my equation is 0.8 * 1.1111111 If I use my calculator 0.8 * 1.1111111 = 0.8888888 = (8/9)

    OMG i see now..so for multiplication you just multiply across and for diving, adding, and subtracting you have to make the denominator the same right?

    I know, I know. My strategy is a little complicated, but I HATE fractions in my equations.
