The product is less than either factor.
A proper fraction is defined as a fraction that is less than one.
That is true.
... less than the original fraction.
One-fifth is one simple fraction that is less than one quarter.
If the fraction has a greater numerator than the denominator than the fraction is greater than one If the fraction has a numerator less than the denominator than the fraction is less than one If the numerator and the denominator are the same numbers than the fraction is equal to one **The numerator is the top number; the denominator is the bottom number**
If the numerator is less than the denominator, the fraction is less than one. For example, 5/7 is less than one. If the numerator is greater than the denominator, the fraction is greater than one. For example, 10/7 is more than one.
When one factor is less than one, the product will be less than the other factor.
No. A fraction can be more than one as well.
A proper fraction, ie: the numerator is smaller than the denominator so it is less than one.
the answer is smaller than the whole number because you're taking a fraction of the second number. it's like multiplying by a decimal.
The product will be less than the other factor.
There is no such fraction.
Nothing happens to the whole number. But the product is less than the whole number. The product might be another whole number, and it might have a fractional part.
A positive fraction that is less than one is known as a proper fraction. In a proper fraction, the denominator is greater than the numerator. A reciprocal fraction would have a numerator greater than the denominator. Such a fraction is known as an improper fraction. Improper fractions are greater than one.
The question cannot be answered because the assertion is false.-1/2 is a fraction which is less than 1. -4 is a whole number. Their product is (-1/2)*(-4) = 2 which is larger than the whole number, not smaller.
23 is a prime and so its only factors are 1 and 23. The product will be smaller than 23 but it is not possible to be certain how the product will compare with 1.
not always.. take .0001 and 1.1, the product is less than 1.
It is not necessarily the case.
