4 x 3 = 12. Therefore, any number less than 12 is less than the product of 4 and 3.

It is 3n - 5.

3x - 3

the number is less than or equal to -3

Expressed algebraically, this would be equal to 3x - 3.

1 * (1-4) = 1*(-3) = -3

This would be written as 3*n-10

there is no number less than 49 between 1 and 100 that if multiplied by 2 will have a 3-digit product no number less than 50, actually

Find 3 consecutive numbers where the product of the smaller two numbers is 19 less than the square of the largest number.

y is 2 less than the product of 3 and x

"Product" is a binary operation. You cannot have a product of 3: it has to be the product of 3 and another number.

3*(x-5)=39 x-5=13 x=18

(x - 2)(x + 3) = x2 + 3x - 2x -6 = x2 + x - 6

It depends on the signs of the two numbers.The answer is tricky when at least one number is negative because you have to remember that "less than" means "farther to the left on the number line" and NOT "greater in magnitude". E.g. -20 is less than -4 because -20 is farther to the left even though its magnitude (absolute value) is greater.There are four possible cases:Whole number and decimal are both positive: The product is less than the whole number. The decimal reduces the magnitude of the product, so the product is to the left of the whole number on the number line. E.g. 0.5 * 10 = 5, which is less than 10.Whole number positive, decimal negative. The product less than the whole number. A negative times a positive is ALWAYS negative, so regardless of its magnitude the product is to the left of the positive whole number on the number line. E.g. 15 * (-0.2) = -3 and -3 < 15Whole number negative, decimal negative. The product is greater than the whole number. The product is negative but like in Case 1, the magnitude of the product is smaller, so the product is to the right of the whole number on the number line. E.g. (-8) * 0.3 = -2.4 and -8 < -2.4Whole number negative, decimal negative. The product is greater than the whole number. A negative times a negative is positive, and ANY positive number is always greater than any negative number regardless of magnitude. E.g. (-0.25) * (-12) = +3 and -12 < +3

Expressed as an equation, this would be equal to 13x - 3.
