9/16 * 14/15 = ?? 
to multiply fractions, just multiply the numerator by numerator, and denominator by denominator. (note: numerator = the number above the fraction bar, while denominator = the number below the fraction bar). thus:
9/16 * 14/15
(9*14) / (16*15)
126 / 240 or
21/40 yd^2
hope this helps~ :)
