In my math book i got a question 1 1/3 times 1/4 my answer was 5/12. I know the answer is right but how do i do the problem

Your answer is not right.
First, change 1 1/3 to an improper fraction.
1 1/3 = 4/3
Then multiply the numerators together and the denominators together.
4/3 * 1/4 = 4/12
Simplifying 
4/12 = 1/3
