 Amsco Integrated Algebra I: Multiplying Fractions
This is a free lesson from our course in Amsco's Integrated Algebra
 
   
This lesson covers the concepts on how to multiply fractions. First you’ll learn the properties of the product of two fractions i.e.
• The numerator is the product of the numerators of the given fractions
• The denominator is the product of the denominators of the given fractions. This will follow the explanation of two methods that can be used to find the product of and in lowest terms:
METHOD 1.
• multiply the numerators of the given fractions.
• multiply the denominators of the given fractions.
• reduce the resulting fraction,if possible to lowest terms. (More text below video...)

For example:(5x2/7y)*(14y2/15x3)=(5x2*14y2)/(7y*15x3)=70x2y2/105x3y=(2y/3x)*(35x2y/35x2y)=2y/3x.
METHOD 2.
• factor any polynomial that is not monomial.
• use cancellation to divide a numerator and denominator by each common factor.
•multiply the resulting numerators and the resulting denominators to write the product in lowest terms.
For example:(5x2/7y)*(14y2/15x3)=2y/3x
The video above further explains with the help of several examples.

 
   

As many of you know, Winpossible's online courses use a unique teaching method where an instructor explains the concepts in any given area to you in his/her own voice and handwriting, just like you see your teacher explain things to you on a blackboard in your classroom. This particular lesson includes the teacher's instruction, practice questions as well as end-of-lesson quizzes for practice. As we mentioned above, you can enroll in our online course in Trigonometry by clicking here.

The format of Winpossible's online courses is also very suitable for teachers who are using an interactive whiteboard such as Smartboard on Promethean in their classrooms, because the course lessons can be easily displayed on such interactive whiteboards. Volume pricing is available for schools interested in our online courses. For more information, please contact us at educators@winpossible.com.
