Instructions and Help about Where Form 2220 Multiply

So welcome to my video on multiplying mixed numbers here we have one in five six being multiplied with four and one-half and the first thing that we want to do and I wrote this for you in green is we want to convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions then we want to multiply so let's start off by doing that let's convert these mixed numbers into improper fractions and we'll start off with one and five six let's convert this into an improper fraction since one of five six has a six in the denominator we know that our improper fraction is also going to have a six in our denominator and in our numerator the first thing we do is we multiply our six by the whole number of one and then we add all that to the numerator of five and this is all being multiplied with four-and-a-half so let's do the same thing with this mixed number let's convert four-and-a-half into an improper fraction since our four and a half has a two in the denominator our improper fraction is also going to have a two in the denominator and in our numerator we multiply the two by the whole number or four and then we add all that to our numerator of one so let's simplify these fractions as much as possible in our first fraction we have six times one which is just six and we still have to add the five and this is all over 6 multiplied by our second fraction which has a 2 times 4 2 times 4 is 8 and we still have to add our 1 and this is all over - and let's simplify this even further in our first fraction we have 6 plus 5 which is 11 and we still have a denominator of 6 and this is all being multiplied by our second fraction which has an 8 plus 1 in our numerator which is 9 and we still have a denominator of 2 so now since we have two fractions being multiplied the only thing we need to do is just multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators but before I do that I'm going to simplify because I notice it one of the diagonals we have a 6 and a 9 and since a 6 and a 9 can both be divided by 3 evenly I'm going to simplify this if you divide the 9 by 3 9 divided by 3 is just 3 and if you do something to the top you have to do it to the bottom so now I'm going to divide the 6 by 3 6 divided by 3 is just 2 so now I'm just going to move this over so I have a little bit more space so now I'm going to multiply these two fractions once again I'm going to multiply my numerators and my denominators in our numerator we have 11 times 3 and in our denominator we have 2 times 2 so in our numerator we have 11 times 3 which is just 33 and in our denominator we have 2 times 2 which is just 4 so now we have a final answer of 33 over 4 however since we multiply two mixed numbers our final answer should also be in a mixed number so I'm going to turn 33 over 4 into a mixed number and this could be done by using long division I'm going to divide 33 by 4 4 goes into 33 8 times 4 times 8 is 32 when you subtract 33 to 32 you have a remainder 1 so since 4 goes into 33 eight times we're going to have a whole number of 8 since we have one left over in our remainder we're going to have one in our numerator in our denominator stays the same since we have a four in our fraction we're also going to have a four in our mixed number so 33 over four is exactly the same as 8 and 1/4 and this is our final answer so here are some more videos with some more example problems related to the video you just watched I really hope you're finding my tutorials helpful so until my next video I will see you later
