A mixed number is one that includes both a number and a fraction. 2 1/2, for example, is a composite number. Let’s take a closer look at how to multiply mixed numbers.

Adding and Subtracting Mixed Numbers: Explained

Initial can be used to raise blended numbers by converting them to improper fractions. 2 1/2, for example, can be transformed to 5/2 before being multiplied. The general rules for growing blended numbers are as follows:

 

To begin, convert the combined numbers to erroneous fractions.

 

Place the product on top of the numerators from each fraction and multiply them together.

 

Each fraction’s denominators should be multiplied by each other (the numbers on the bottom). The item is from a new fraction.

 

Streamline or condense the previous response to the simplest phrases possible.

 

Increasing Mixed Numbers and Blended Fractions

 

Transforming blended fractions into unsuitable fractions is one way to multiply them.

 

Example

 

2 2/3 x 3 1/8

 

Solution.

 

Each fraction should be converted to an incorrect fraction.

 

3 1/8 = (3 x 8) +/ 8 = 25/8 is the answer.

 

8/3 = 2 2/3 = 2 2/3 = 2 2/3 = 2 2/3 = 2 2/3 = 2 2/3 = 2 2

 

The numerator as well as the common denominators should be increased.

 

(25 x 8) = 25/8 x 8/3 ( 8 x 3).

 

Typical factors move to the top and bottom in this situation, simplifying via cancellations.

 

25/3 =

 

Convert the blended fractions from the final response.

 

8 1/3 x 25/3 =

 

FRACTIONS, APPROPRIATE AND INAPPROPRIATE

 

An acceptable fraction is one in which the numerator is smaller than the denominator, such as 1/3 or 2/5. An improper fraction is one in which the numerator is more extensive than or equal to 5/2, 6/6, or 17/3. (In other words, a fraction that is less than one is correct.) An inappropriate fraction is one that has a value larger than or equal to one.

 

Blended numbers can be made up of incorrect fractions, as we’ve seen. In the same way, improper fractions can be written as a series of numbers.
