    Here’s the step-by-step process:

    Let’s say we want to multiply the following:

    • Fraction: 2/3
    • Whole number: 5
    • Mixed number: 1 1/4

    Step 1: Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction.
    1 1/4 = (1 × 4 + 1) / 4 = 5/4

    Step 2: Multiply all the fractions and whole numbers together.
    (2/3) × 5 × (5/4) = (2 × 5 × 5) / (3 × 4)
    = 50 / 12
    = 25/6

    Therefore, the result of multiplying 2/3, 5, and 1 1/4 is 25/
