# What is 3/5 times 7/9?

Oct 29, 2016

$\frac{3}{5}$ times $\frac{7}{9}$ equals $\frac{7}{15}$.

#### Explanation:

When multiplying two fractions, the process is to multiply the numerators and then multiply the denominators. Then you reduce the answer if possible. {Remember the raised dot, $\cdot$, means multiplication.}

$\frac{3}{5} \cdot \frac{7}{9} = \frac{21}{45}$

Both $21$ and $45$ are evenly divisible by $3$, so we will reduce the answer by $3$.

$\frac{21 \div 3}{45 \div 3} = \frac{7}{15}$
