# Multiplying Fractions Test #3

Example 1: Find each product $$\frac{2}{3} \cdot \frac{9}{11}$$ -Each fraction is simplified
-Can we cross cancel anything? Yes a common factor of 3 between the first fraction's numerator and the second fraction's denominator $$\require{cancel}\frac{2}{\cancel{3}} \cdot \frac{\cancel{3} \cdot 3}{11}$$ $$\frac{2}{1} \cdot \frac{3}{11}$$ -Multiply the numerators together
$$2 \cdot 3 = 6$$ -Multiply the denominators together
$$1 \cdot 11 = 11$$ Result: $$\frac{6}{11}$$ $$\frac{2}{3} \cdot \frac{9}{11} = \frac{6}{11}$$
