In skills class, we were assigned to do another post about fractions. The question is: Are 2/5 of 3/4 the same as 3/4 of 2/5? We will find out by using pictures.

This is 2/5 of 3/4 :

To find out how to do this you need to multiply the fractions and to do that you have to multiply the numerators and the denominators.

numerators: 2 x 3 = 6

denominators: 5 x 4 = 20

So the answer is 6/20 or when simplified: 3/10

This is 3/4 of 2/5:

numerators: 3 x 2 = 6

denominators: 4 x 5 = 20

So, as you can see they're the same (:
