Re: Mandy Jane's CornerWhen I look at the number 0.2 I would automatically know that it is one fifth, but that is not necessarily obvious.

Re: Mandy Jane's CornerSorry about that my computer crashed so it then wasted several minutes rebooting. The answer is to multiply top and bottom numbers together.... So the numerators (top) are 2 x 1 = 2 The denominators (bottom) are 3 x 2 = 6 So the result is: This simplifies to: Last edited by SteveB (20130321 04:37:32) #693 20130321 03:41:11

Re: Mandy Jane's CornerRight I will give you a few fraction multiplication problems. Remember not to confuse adding and multiplying fractions. Cancel or simplify as far as possible. (At the time of posting I was unable to use Latex to display things like this in a good readable fashion I have now been taught by Bob to do this properly. If you look further back, Mandy, you will find that I have gone through it and tidied up the earlier fractions. They will hopefully be easier to read.)
