When you multiply 23 by a fraction less than one how does the product compare to the factors?

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.

Why is the answer larger when you multiply a whole number by a whole number and smaller when you multiply a whole number by a proper fraction?

It is larger because the two whole numbers form a greater, larger number when multiplpied together. It is smaller when u multiply a whole number by a fraction because a fraction is a decimal and u get a smaller number when multiplying a number like 1/7 of 5


What can you say about the product of a given fraction and a factor greater than 1?

The product will have the same sign as the given fraction. Also, if it is a proper fraction, then the absolute value of the product will be between the absolute value of the fraction and the factor.

Change the mixed numbers to improper fractions 535?

You multiply the whole number and the denominator. Then then you add the numerator to the product. Numerator: top of fraction Denominator: bottom of fraction Product: is when you multiply, for example 4 x 4 = 16 so 16 is the product.


Do you mulitiply the denominators?

First, multiply the numerators and write the product of the numerators above a fraction bar. Next, multiply the denominators and write that product underneath the fraction bar. You don't have to find a common denominator. You do, however, have to reduce your answer to simplest terms.


A fraction times a fraction?

Multiply the two numerators and their product will be the new numerator., and multiply the two denominators and their product will be the new denominator, then reduce the terms if possible. Example: 3/4 x 4/5 = 12/20 = 3/5


Is the product of a fraction less than one?

product of a fraction less than 1 and a whole number greater than or less than the whole Number


Why is the product of two proper fractions less than either of the fractions?

A proper fraction is less than 1. Whenever you multiply something by a number < 1, the result (product) is less than the original number. So when you multiply a proper fraction by a number less one (such as another proper fraction, the product is less than the original proper fraction. The only time a product involving a given number is larger than the given number is when you multiply the given number by a number that is > 1. Since all proper fractions are < 1, products involving them are always less than the original given number.


how to convert a non-proper fraction into a proper fraction?

Multiply the whole number by the denominator. Add the product to the numerator of the proper fraction. The sum is the numerator of the improper fraction. The denominator will stay the same.


How do you multiply fractions with whole numbers and mixed numbers?

The question is ambiguous. Do you want to know how to multiply a fraction by a whole number, as well as by a mixed number? Or are you asking how to multiply a whole number by a mixed number and express the product as a fraction? Or what?


How do you find out which fraction is larger?

Multiply each numerator by the opposite denominator, otherwise known as cross multiply. Then compare these two products and determine which one is larger. The fraction that contributed the numerator (top number) to the larger product is the larger fraction. For example: Which is larger, 2/5 or 3/4? Multiply 2 X 4 = 8 Multiply 3 X 5 = 15 Determine that 15 is larger than 8. Determine that the fraction 3/4 contributed the numerator (top number) to the larger product, 15. So 3/4 is larger than 2/5.


When you multiply a number by a number greater than 1 you get a product that is?

Bigger than it


How do you multiply a fraction by a whole number?

To multiply a fraction by a whole number, you must treat the whole number as a fraction by using 1 as the denominator (bottom number of the fraction). Example: 3/4 x 5 would be written 3/4 x 5/1. Then multiply the two numerators (top numbers) together for the numerator of the product fraction, and multiply the two denominators together for the denominator of the product. Thus 3x5 = 15 and 4x1 = 4 which would be the product 15/4. The next step is to convert the fraction to a mixed number by dividing the numerator by the denominator (15/4 = 3 r 3) which would be the final answer of 3-3/4.
