Since practice makes perfect, one effective method is to use your text book and write on paper all of the concepts along with equations that represent that concept. Keep each concept on a different sheet. Take notes and write down your opinion for every equation or algebra concept. You may not like it at first, but the more you practice and use this personal algebra notebook the better for you. You must be patient because at first it might seem like you are never going to be able to figure out how all of these numbers plug into one and other, so do not rush, remember that learning algebra takes time.
In the simplest cases, the two fractions will already have a common denominator. In this case, add the numerators and then reduce the resulting fraction.
The worksheets on this page have various types of practice for multiplying fractions. Included are problems that focus on cross-cancelling which is a skill that greatly simplifies the process of reducing fractions in the answer step. Cross cancelling prior to multiplying fractions results in much smaller products which are significantly easier to reduce and turn into proper fractions.
