The given operation and reduce it in simplest form.

Explanation

A number having a form of ab, where a,b are integers and bâ‰ 0 is called rational number.

If ab and cd are from rational set, then multiplication of rational is formed by writing the numerator as product of numerators and denominator of the product as product of the denominator.

abâ‹…cd=aâ‹…cbâ‹…d=acbd

If m and k are integers but not zero and n is any integer, then the two fractions nâ‹…kmâ‹…k and nm follow the fractionâ€™s fundamental principle as given below.

nâ‹…kmâ‹…k=nm
