When you multiply two rational numbers will you always get a number that is smaller than the two factors?

No. A rational number is ANY number that can be represented as one integer over a second integer (which cannot be zero). There is no requirement that the top integer is less than the bottom integer (an improper fraction is still a rational number - all integers are rational numbers as they can be represented as an improper fraction with a 1 as the denominator). Only if both rational numbers are less than 1 will the result of multiplying them together be less than both of them. If one rational number is greater than 1 and the other less than 1, then the result of multiplying them together is greater than the number less than 1 and less than the number greater than 1. If both rational numbers are greater than 1, then the result of multiplying them together is greater than both of them.


When multiplying a decimal by a decimal why do you get a smaller decimal?

You only get a smaller decimal if you do 0. something because your multiplying it by 0! oust like with the whole numbers, if you times something by 0 it gets smaller. only with a decimal, there's are still numbers less than the 0 so it gets smaller and smaller until you have a total of 0!


Can 4 be a sum of two negative numbers?

No, when you add two negative numbers, it wil get smaller (i.e. less than 0) e.g. -1+-5 = -6 minus 6 is smaller than -1 and -5 If you were fining the product (multiplying) then yes, -2x-2 = 4 because a - x a - = a +
