I am trying to figure out how to multiply 4/9 x 1/8

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

4/9 *1/8

Multiply the numerator and then multiply denominator separately

hence you get 4/72

simplify by dividing both numerator and denominator by 4

hence you get  1/18

answer=1/18

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Thank you so much.  I probably shouldve asked you a more difficult one maybe like 365 x 12/30?  Could you possibly help me out with that one as well?

simplify 12/30 so as to get 2/5

then multiply 365*2/5

multiply numerator and get 730

divide 730/5

then get 146 as the answer
