7-32.

Simplify each expression.  Homework Help ✎

1. $\frac{2}{3}\left(0.8\right)$

Multiply and reduce. Notice that $0.8$ can be converted into a fraction.

$\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)\left(\frac{8}{10}\right)$

$\frac{8}{15}$

1. $\frac { 4 } { 3 } \cdot \frac { 3 } { 7 }$

Multiply and reduce. Notice that since the two fractions are being multiplied the $3$ in the numerator and the $3$ in the denominator make a Giant One.

$\left(\frac{4}{1}\right)\left(\frac{1}{7}\right)$

1. $-\frac{5}{6}\cdot\frac{4}{7}$

Multiply and reduce.

1. $- \frac { 4 } { 5 } \cdot ( - 1 \frac { 1 } { 3 } )$

Multiply and reduce. Converting the second fraction into a fraction greater than one may prove to be more helpful.

$1\frac{1}{15}$
