Multiplying Fractions: 1 3/4 Cups of Water x 3
Let's say you have a recipe that calls for 1 3/4 cups of water and you want to triple the recipe. To find out how much water you'll need, you need to multiply 1 3/4 by 3.
Here's how to do it:

Convert the mixed number to a fraction: 1 3/4 is the same as (1 x 4 + 3) / 4 = 7/4.

Multiply the fraction by 3: (7/4) x 3 = 21/4

Simplify the fraction: 21/4 can be converted back to a mixed number: 5 1/4.
Therefore, 1 3/4 cups of water times 3 equals 5 1/4 cups of water.
Note: You might need to use a measuring cup with markings for 1/4 cup increments to accurately measure out 5 1/4 cups of water.
