Step 1: Recognize that multiplying the same fraction by itself is the same as squaring the fraction:

$\frac{10}{19}\times \frac{10}{19}={\left(\frac{10}{19}\right)}^{2}$

This is the condensed form.

Step 2: Compute the result. To square a fraction, square both the numerator and the denominator:

${\left(\frac{10}{19}\right)}^{2}=\frac{1{0}^{2}}{1{9}^{2}}=\frac{100}{\mathrm{361}}$

## Final Answer

The simplified answer is

$\frac{100}{361}\backslash frac\{100\}\{361\}$.## Explanation

Using an exponent condenses the expression, as multiplying the same fraction by itself is the same as raising it to the power of 2. After expanding the exponent, you compute the result and express it as a fraction.
