Textbook Problem

Multiply the following fractions and reduce to lowest terms. Use cancellation whenever possible.

To determine

**To calculate:** The value of the product

Explanation

**Given information:**

The provided expression is

**Formula used:**

Multiplication and Reduction:

Step 1: Simply write the multiplication of fractions.

Step 2: Find a common factor which divides at least one of the numerators and one of the denominators evenly.

Step 3: Divide the numerator and denominator by the corresponding common factor to reduce the expression.

Step 4: Repeat this process until there are no more common factors other than 1.

Step 5: Now, multiply all the simplified numerators to form the new numerator and all he denominators to form the new denominator.

**Calculation:**

Consider the expression,

The 4 in the numerator and 2 in the denominator have a common factor 2.

So, divide the 4 in the numerator and 2 in the denominator by the common factor 2
