    Turn it into a improper fraction and then multiply both the numerator and denominator together!

    So like 1 1/2 x 2 1/2

    Turn that into improper fractions and get 3/2x5/2

    then you get 15/2 which is 7 1/2

    Convert the mixed number (s) into improper fractions. multiply the improper fractions together and then convert your answer back into a mixed number if needed.

    for example:

    2 1/2 * 4 3/5

    =

    3/2 * 23/5

    =

    69/10

    =

    6 9/10
