Subject: Fraction Errors

Hi! I am stumped. We are working on multiplying fractions and one of my
students is getting the answers wrong constantly. I am sure there is a
pattern but he fails to tell or show what he is doing.

Please help. Here are some examples:

4/5 x 3/4 =166

1/2 x 3/8=68

2/9 x 1/5= 100

2/3 x 4/6= 132
