    First, write 6 as a fraction. |dw:1434132278072:dw|

    Now multiply the numerators together. Then multiply the denominators together.

    No. Be careful. 6 is the same as 6/1, not 6/6 6/6 is 1

    Yes, that's what you need to do. Now multiply the numerators together. What is 6 * 3 = ?

    Correct. Now you need to reduce, if possible. 18 = 2 * 3 * 3 5 = 5 They have no factors in common, so you can't reduce.

    There is still one more step. Since this is an improper fraction, a fraction whose numerator is larger than the denominator, you can write it as a mixed numeral.

    To do that, use long division.

    18/5 is the same as 18 divided by 3. 18 divided by 3 is 3 with remainder 3.

    That is how you change an improper fraction into a mixed numeral. The result of the division (called quotient) is the whole number part. The remainder is the numerator of the fraction. The number you divided by (called divisor) is the denominator of the fraction.

    the answer is 3 3/5 miles, since it's a distance.
