    I usually work out the answer and \(then\) make the answer choices. When you multiply fractions: 1. Cancel factors if possible, 2. multiply numerators 3. multiply denominators 4. Simplify if necessary

    Example: Multiply \(\Large \frac{5}{4}\times\frac{6}{7}\) 1. Cancel factors if possible, \(\Large \frac{5}{2}\times\frac{3}{7}\) 2. multiply numerators \(\Large \frac{15}{2\times 7}\) 3. multiply denominators\(\Large \frac{15}{14}\) 4. Simplify if necessary - nothing to simplify so answer: \(\Large \frac{15}{14}\) You can use the same steps for the given problem.

    BTW, I think the 5' s in the answer choices mean "s".

    Anyway, I am not concerned about the question nor the answer choices. If you followed the above procedure, you should find a correct answer.
