# How do you multiply \frac { 14} { 3} \times \frac { 5} { 7}?

$\frac{10}{3}$ or $3 \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

When you multiply fractions, all you need to do is multiply across, in both the numerator and the denominator.

In this problem we are given:

$\frac{14}{3} \cdot \frac{5}{7}$

This becomes:

$\frac{14 \left(5\right)}{3 \left(7\right)}$

$\implies \frac{70}{21}$

From here, all we have to do is simplify:

$\frac{70}{21} \implies \frac{10}{3}$ or $3 \frac{1}{3}$
