Question

Simplify 1 third cross times 1 over 6=

  1. 1 over 18
  2. 1 over 9
  3. 1 half
  4. 2

Hint:

The first step when multiplying fractions is to multiply the two numerators. The second step is to multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the new fractions.

The correct answer is: 1 over 18


Here, we have to multiply 1⁄3 and 1⁄6.
We have, 1⁄3 × 1⁄6
= (1×1)⁄(3×6)
= 1⁄18.
Hence, the correct option is A.

The fractions can also be simplified before multiplying by factoring out common factors in the numerator and denominator.
