Multiplying Fractions by Cross Cancelling Worksheets

Grab our free multiplying fractions by cross cancelling worksheets and begin to build up a head of steam for your preparation! To multiply fractions in our everyday practice, we would first multiply the numerators, then multiply the denominators, and finally simplify the product. But in this set of pdf worksheets, we take a different path. We cross cancel the fractions if they have any common factors, simplify them, and then proceed to find the product of what's left. Let's take 12/5 x 7/6 for instance. Cross cancelling 12 and 6, we have 2/5 x 7/1, and that's 14/5 or 2 4/5. That was quick, wasn't it? It's your turn now. Plunge in and get started!

These printable multiplying fractions with cross cancelling worksheets are ideal for grade 4, grade 5, and grade 6.
