Work Step by Step

To simplify, we multiply the numerators by each other and the denominators by each other while simplifying the fractions through the cancelling of common factors: Step 1: $(\frac{7x}{9y})\times(\frac{12y}{14})$ Step 2: $(\frac{1x}{9y})\times(\frac{12y}{2})$ Step 3: $(\frac{1x}{9})\times(\frac{12}{2})$ Step 4: $(\frac{1x}{9})\times(\frac{6}{1})$ Step 5: $(\frac{1x}{3})\times(\frac{2}{1})$ Step 6: $(\frac{2x}{3})$
