Multiplication on integer fractions is an extension of the multiplicative operation on the integers to integer fractions. Note that the basic properties of multiplication on integer fraction only hold up to fraction similarity.


mul-fraction-ℤ : fraction-ℤ  fraction-ℤ  fraction-ℤ
pr1 (mul-fraction-ℤ (m , n , n-pos) (m' , n' , n'-pos)) =
  m *ℤ m'
pr1 (pr2 (mul-fraction-ℤ (m , n , n-pos) (m' , n' , n'-pos))) =
  n *ℤ n'
pr2 (pr2 (mul-fraction-ℤ (m , n , n-pos) (m' , n' , n'-pos))) =
  is-positive-mul-ℤ n-pos n'-pos

mul-fraction-ℤ' : fraction-ℤ  fraction-ℤ  fraction-ℤ
mul-fraction-ℤ' x y = mul-fraction-ℤ y x

infixl 40 _*fraction-ℤ_
_*fraction-ℤ_ = mul-fraction-ℤ

ap-mul-fraction-ℤ :
  {x y x' y' : fraction-ℤ}  x  x'  y  y' 
  x *fraction-ℤ y  x' *fraction-ℤ y'
ap-mul-fraction-ℤ p q = ap-binary mul-fraction-ℤ p q


Multiplication on integer fractions respects the similarity relation

sim-fraction-mul-fraction-ℤ :
  {x x' y y' : fraction-ℤ} 
  sim-fraction-ℤ x x' 
  sim-fraction-ℤ y y' 
  sim-fraction-ℤ (x *fraction-ℤ y) (x' *fraction-ℤ y')
  {(nx , dx , dxp)} {(nx' , dx' , dx'p)}
  {(ny , dy , dyp)} {(ny' , dy' , dy'p)} p q =
    (nx *ℤ ny) *ℤ (dx' *ℤ dy')
     (nx *ℤ dx') *ℤ (ny *ℤ dy')
      by interchange-law-mul-mul-ℤ nx ny dx' dy'
     (nx' *ℤ dx) *ℤ (ny' *ℤ dy)
      by ap-mul-ℤ p q
     (nx' *ℤ ny') *ℤ (dx *ℤ dy)
      by interchange-law-mul-mul-ℤ nx' dx ny' dy

Unit laws for multiplication on integer fractions

Multiplication on integer fractions is associative

Multiplication on integer fractions distributes on the left over addition
