So we're asked to multiply 3/8 come to over seven and 1/6. Um and so we can either multiply across or we can simplify. I would recommend simplifying because that bottom has some pretty big numbers, and so multiplying first will make your simplification a little more difficult. Um, I can see that we can simplify here to into six would make that a three and then if you noticed, three would cancel out three. And so now what that's leaving me with is a one on top and an eight times seven on the bottom for an answer of 1/56.
