A product is a binary operator. That means a product is the result of combining TWO numbers. You cannot have a product of just one number - whether it is a fraction or not is irrelevant.

You don't. LCM and GCF (HCF) refer to whole numbers. You can find the LCM of two whole numbers that happen to be denominators, but in that case we call it the LCD. You can find the GCF of two whole numbers that happen to be the numerator and denominator of a fraction, and that will let you know whether the fraction can be simplified.

Multiply them together

Factors.

No. For any given fraction, you can find whole numbers that are more than, and whole numbers that are less than, the fraction. For example, if your fraction is 5/2 (equal to 2 1/2), 2 is less, and 3 is more, than this fraction.

first add the whole numbers then do simple fraction subtraction

The product of two whole numbers depends on what the numbers are. The operation is multiplication.11 and 8. You find the factors of 88 first. Then find which 2 will subtract to equal 3

The simplest fraction is simply the fraction that has top and bottom numbers that cannot be any smaller while still being whole numbers. For example, 27/36 is equivalent to the simplified fraction 3/4.

For the product to be zero, one of the numbers must be 0. So the question is to find the maximum sum for fifteen consecutive whole numbers, INCLUDING 0. This is clearly achived by the numbers 0 to 14 (inclusive), whose sum is 105.

10 and 12

To find the product of two fractions, multiply the top two numbers together and enter the total above or to the left of the slash, then multiply the bottom two numbers together and enter that total below or to the right of the slash.

10 and 28

They are: 2 and 140

33X34=1122 34-33=1

To find a fraction of anything, put it over one, so 25.45/1. If you want whole numbers, it is 2545/100, which reduces to 509/20.

They are 2 and 140 because their LCM is 140 and their product is 280

The concept of factors (and common factors) is applicable to whole numbers, not to fractions. The numerator and denominator of a rational fraction are integers and they can have a greatest common factor but that is not a factor of the fraction.

Proper fractions can't become whole numbers. Improper fractions can only become whole numbers if the numerator is a multiple of the denominator. To find out, divide the denominator into the numerator. If there is no remainder, it's a whole number.

3 and 84.

893 and 907

2x2=42+2=4I tried negative numbers and didn't find any.

That depends what you mean. If you mean finding the product of a fraction and a whole number, simply multiply the numerator of the fraction by the whole number and reduce to its simplest form. For example, 3/4 x 4 = 12/4, which, when reduced to its simplest form, is equal to 3.

Any whole number can be expressed as a fraction by putting it over 1.

20 x 21 = 420
