...of •$, which is simply reducing a compound fraction to a simple one. This is done by multiplying **the numerators together for a new numerator, and the denominators together for a new denominator.** This is, therefore, the process in multiplication of fractions. In the following example, the result... | |

...í=f¡ and §=й, and subtracting 9 from 10, we have A. Fractions are multiplied together by multiplying **the numerators together for a new numerator, and the denominators together for a new denominator.** Thus to multiply H by I, we have = — - = — • by resolving 8 X о 24 12 the 8 into 2X4, and cancelling... | |

...dots, (•) ; and, 3d. Reduce the whole expression to its LOWEST TERMS, then multiply the remaining **numerators together, for a new numerator, and the denominators together, for a new denominator,** the resulting fraction will be the product, in its lowest terms. EXAMPLES. Find the value of p. in... | |
