If you can multiply fractions, then you can multiply mixed numbers. There's only one more step that you must complete at the beginning of the problem in order to multiply mixed fractions. Let's first take a look at the steps.

- Rewrite the mixed numbers as improper fractions.
- Simplify within the problem if necessary.
- Multiply the numerators.
- Multiply the denominators.
- Rewrite the answer as a mixed number if needed. Always check to make sure that your fractions are in simplest form.

So, as you can see from the list of steps above, the only "new" step is to first change the mixed numbers to improper fractions.
