## Multiplying Mixed Numbers: 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 1 1/2

Let's figure out what happens when we multiply 1 1/2 by itself three times. Here's how to solve it in fraction form:

### 1. Convert mixed numbers to improper fractions:

**1 1/2 = (1 x 2 + 1) / 2 = 3/2**

### 2. Multiply the fractions:

**(3/2) x (3/2) x (3/2) = (3 x 3 x 3) / (2 x 2 x 2)**

### 3. Simplify:

**(27/8)**

### 4. Convert back to a mixed number (optional):

**27/8 = 3 3/8**

Therefore, 1 1/2 times 1 1/2 times 1 1/2 is equal to **27/8** or **3 3/8**.
