Unit 7 - Objective 2 - Multiplication and Division of Fractions
To multiply two rational numbers, multiply the numerator and multiply the denominator.
Then factor and reduce as in objective 1.
To divide one rational number by another, multiply the first by the reciprocal of the second.
We want to factor before we multiply or divide.
