change it to improper fractions

45 1/4=(45*4+1)/4=181/4 check that

23 3/4= (23*4+3)/4=95/4 check that.

then you multiply

181*95/(4*4)=17195/16=1074 11/16 check that

The easiest way to do this is to convert the fractions to decimals.

45 1/4 = 45.25

23 3/4 = 23.75

45.25 * 23.75 = 1,074.6875

Please check and make sure you've posted the problem correctly.

You could also convert the fractions to improper fractions and multiply.

181/4 * 95/4 = 17,195/16 = 1074.6875
