How To: Understand fraction multiplication by drawing

Understand fraction multiplication by drawing

In this tutorial, we learn how to understand fraction multiplication by drawing. Start out by drawing a square on a piece of paper, leaving space around it. Next, cut this into vertical thirds (your equation is 1/3 x 1/2). After this, shade one of the thirds in the square. Use the side of your pencil to shade in the third. Then, cut the square into horizontal halves. The square will now be in equal shapes that are also called sixths. After this, shadow one of the halves with a different color or design. Now you will be seeing a picture of the answer!
