# How do you evaluate #7\frac { 1} { 3} \times 2\frac { 2} { 5}#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To multiply that, rewrite the mixed fractions as improper fractions.

Take the **denominator** of the mixed fraction, **multiply** it by the **whole number** and **add the numerator.** Whatever value you get becomes the numerator of the improper fraction over the denominator of the mixed fraction.

For

#(3*7)+1#

#21+1#

#22#

So our numerator is

For

#(5*2)+2#

#10+2#

#12#

So our numerator is

Now back to our question;

#7(1)/3*2(2)/5#

#22/3*12/5#

Multiply the numerator and the denominator

#264/15=(88*cancel(3))/(5*cancel(3))#

#rArr88/5#
