Hi Eliana;

6 1/2*3 1/4

Let's convert each number into fractions...

6 1/2=13/2

The numerator, number on top, is equal to [(6)(2)]+1=13

The denominator, number on bottom remains unchanged.

3 1/4=13/4

[(3)(4)]+1=13

(13/2)(13/4)

We will now multiply the numerators together, (13)(13)=169

We will now multiply the denominators together, (2)(4)=8

**169/8**

We can convert this into a whole number and a fraction.

169 divided by 8=21 and a remainder of 1.

**21 1/8**
