# How To: Multiply & divide fractions & mixed numbers

In this tutorial, we learn how to multiply & divide fractions & mixed numbers. When multiplying and dividing fractions you don't need a common number, you just multiply straight across. When dividing, you simply flip the second fraction over and multiply straight across like normal. When multiplying a whole number and mixed number, simply put the whole number over one. Then, convert the mixed number into an improper fraction. Then, multiply the mixed number with the numerator and add in the denominator. Put this over the denominator, then cancel out any numbers you can. When finished, put the numbers across the board and you will get the correct answer.
