Proper fractions make up a very small set of numbers; many times, you will need to multiply mixed numbers or whole numbers.  It is basically the same as multiplying proper fractions with just a couple different steps that are very important:

  1. Convert your mixed numbers or whole numbers to improper fractions
  2. Cross reduce if possible
  3. Multiply your numerators and multiply your denominators
  4. Convert your answer back to a mixed number if necessary.
