1. Well, old lady! This is one of the very best math websites around:
http://www.aaamath.com/

Go into the fractions section (list on the left), and then choose the topic you need to know about. The explanations and examples are excellent.

Basically, for adding fractions you have to find a common denominator first. For multiplying, you don't have to do that.
