# Multiplying Mixed Matching

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a matching exercise where students are asked to multiply mixed numbers and then pair the product with its correct answer from a list. The worksheet is structured with a column of multiplication problems on the left and a column of possible answers on the right. Students must perform each multiplication problem and then draw a line or write the corresponding answer next to it, matching problems to answers. This format tests both their ability to multiply mixed numbers and to recognize equivalent fractions and mixed numbers.

The worksheet is teaching students to multiply mixed numbers, an essential arithmetic skill involving both whole numbers and fractions. It requires students to convert mixed numbers into improper fractions, multiply them, and possibly convert them back to mixed numbers to match with the answers provided. Additionally, this exercise is likely to improve students’ ability to simplify fractions and recognize equivalent values, as the answers may be in their simplest form. The matching aspect of the worksheet also adds an element of verification, allowing students to self-check their work by ensuring each problem has a unique correct answer.
