### Flash Animation

I have been exerimenting with Flash Animation and have made a little animation for multiplying fractions here

The animation should appear at the right hand side next to where it says "There are 3 simple steps to multiply fractions".

I can make lots more like this, it turns out not to be that hard, and even a little fun. But I am STUCK, because I don't know where to put it on the page.

So, could you guys give ME some suggestions on layout/colour etc and whether you think it is a good idea or not.

Cheers!

That's a very nice animation. If that was my website, I would probably have it BEFORE the text: 1. Multiply the top numbers..........
Or, I would fully justify the the three steps and then have the animation beside it.

### Re: Flash Animation

That so looks like a leech of How Stuff Works animations. Which are great.

Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Luckily I haven't seen them (now I get scared to see other people's animations!). Of course, being a Flash animation they are all bound to look similar.

The symbol for play is the thing that made it looked alike.

LOL, though it did start to annoy, your repetitive use of that phrase is actually starting to make me laugh.

At the end of the page:
