Questions

How do I use cross cancellation when multiplying fractions?

• Compare the first fraction’s numerator with the second fraction’s denominator.
• Identify the GCF between them, then divide the numerator and denominator.
• Cross out the existing numerator and denominator, then rewrite the new one next to it.
• Repeat this process starting with the second fraction.
• No need to simplify
