This week there are questions on multiplying fractions ...... don't panic!  Remember multiplication is the same as repeated addition.

So... if the question is 3 x ¼  , this is the same as writing ¼ + ¼ +¼


If the question is mixed number multiplication such as  2 x 3½, then multiply the whole numbers first (2 x 3) then multiply the fraction (2 x ½) then add the two answers together.
