How to find the Product of Mixed Numbers? Finding the products of proper and improper fractions is easy. All you have to do is multiply all the numerators together and multiply all the denominators together. The resulting fraction is the answer. The third type of fraction that kids have to understand is the mixed fractions, also known as mixed numbers. These mixed numbers consist of a whole number and a fraction. Example: A mixed number looks like this; 1 1/2=Quotient Remainder/Dividend Multiplying two mixed numbers is not that difficult if you follow this step-by-step guide. Step 1: Convert Mixed Number into Improper Fraction - The first step to multiply mixed numbers is to convert it into an improper fraction. Example: 1 1/2=((1×2)+1)/2=3/2 Step 2: Multiply - The next step is to multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators Step 3: Simplify - Simplify the resulting fraction where possible! Example Multiply 1 3/4 and 2 3/5 ((1×4)+3)/4×((2×5)+3)/5 7/4×13/5 (7×13)/(4×5)=91/20
