# What is 2/5 times 3/5?

### 4 Answers

2/5 x 3/5 = (2x3)/(5x5) = **6/25**

Since we are multiplying the fractions, the numerators will be multiplied with each other and denominators will multiply with each other, yield the result.

Hope this helps.

2/5 and 3/5 can be looked at as fractions.

`2/5` `*` `3/5`

Since with fractions, when you are **multiplying, **you must always multiply the numerators with *numerators* and *denominators* with denominators. (Remember, a *numerator* is the top value of the fractions; 2 and 3 in this case, and a *denominator* is the bottom value of the fractions; 5 and 5 in this case.)

`2*3=6`

6 will be the final answer's numerator result, and

`5*5=25`

25 will be the denominator's result.

When put together, the final answer is

**`6/25`**

Oftentimes, you will be able to simplify the final answer by getting a number that is divisible (can be divided by to achieve a whole number) on both the numerator and denominator, but in this case, the answer is in its simplest form, as there is no common factor between 6 and 25 besides the number 1.

2/5X3/5=6/25

simply multiply these two fractions

`2/5xx3/5=6/(25)`
