• Rule: when multiplying fractions just multiply the numerators and denominators straight across and simplify.you do not need a least common denominator( LCD)
• Step 1:                          2 x 3 =6
•                                4 x 6 = 24

• Step 2:     (6 x 1)            simplifying
•              (6 x 4)

FINAL ANSWER:
1.

Answer:
• Another way of getting the same answer..
• Step 1                       2 x 3 = 6
•                           2  x 12 = 24

• Step 2                         Simplify
•                   (3 x 2)
•               (3 x 8)      =

• Step 3              Simplify some more..
•                 (2 x 1)
•               ( 2 X 4)       =

it took 2 steps to get the same answer!
• Multiply numerators and denominators straight across.
• in this example we did not need to simplify
•  is already simplified
• meaning there is no number that can divide into 10 and 21 evenly
