A student asks whether it is easier to add fractions or multiply fractions. What my respone should be?

If you don't know, you should not be a teacher.
Most of us find multiplying fractions easier
a/c * b/d= ab/cd
adding fractions, one has to get a common denominator.

I say it's easier to multiply them because you keep the same denominator...i think
