In a fraction the numerator can be divided by the denominator. When it comes to fraction multiplication of two fractions multiply the numerators and denominators and express it as a fraction again. Finally convert it into the lowest trem and then simplify the fraction. The lowest term of a fraction can be obtained by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their HCF.

When we divide two fractions, the second fraction is reversed, that is the numerator is made the denominator and the denominator becomes the numerator and the simply multiply the fractions. Then, reduce to the lowest term and simplify it to get the final answer.
