What do you have to do when multiplying two fractions?

You multiply the numerators together and the denominators together.
-If it’s a mixed number write it as an improper fraction before multiplying.

(Yes!!! Literally the only simple thing we have to do in maths! I nearly had a breakdown trying to remember how to do this; whether you had to convert to decimals or what, by no! Yay!!! It’s so simple!)

Peeta only has enough flour to make 3/4 of his dough recipe for orange bagels-but not orange like Effie’s hair, more like the sunset. His dough recipe makes 15 and 1/2 bagels using 3/4 measurements.

3/4 x 31/2 = 93/8
