2 x 1 3/8 = 2 6/8 or reduced 2 3/4

Multiply fractions. you just multiply the top of the fraction and say it was 1 5/8 fabbric multiply 1 5/8 x 2 = 2 10/8. But that is not right. the answer would be 3 2/8 or 3 1/4 because 10 /8 is 1 with 2 remainder. always keep the divisor the same at least until you can reduce it. 2/8 = 1/4. does that make sense?
