#### Home | Fractions menu | Contest

**Step 1:** Change the whole number to a fraction. This is really
easy. The number 2 is the fraction 2/1. The number 400 is the fraction
400/1, and so on.

**Step 2:** Multiply the two fractions.

**Example:** 2/3 x 12

We can reduce 24/3 to 8/1 using the Euclidean Algorithm. Of course, 8/1 = 8.
