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

  • math -

    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
