When you multiply two numbers greater than one, you create many groups of a given number, so the result is greater than either the number of groups or the number you created many groups of.
When you multiply a number by a number less than one, you create less than one group of a given number. If you create only part of one group of a given number, it makes sense that the result will be less than the number you started with.
The product is less than either factor.
because when you multiply the denominators it creates a much smaller proportion. for example multiply 0.5 by 0.5, the result is 0.25 in fractions it is 1/2 x 1/2, the result 1/4
Multiply the numerators together. Multiply the denominators together. Reduce, if possible. The answer when multiplying fractions together will always be lower than either.
It can be either. It is the number at the top of a fraction.
You can either 1)You can divide out the fraction used for pi then multiply by the diameter or 2)Put the diameter over 1 then multiply across with the fraction used for pi.
For the same reason that you can multiply two proper fractions and get a smaller number than either of them. You are multiplying either decimal by a number that is smaller than 1. As a result you get an answer that is smaller than 1 times the first number.
Remember the denominator shows how many equal parts the item is divided into, so because you are multiplying the number of parts (you are increasing the number of cuts) the denominator will get bigger ...which in turn means the pieces will be smaller. Just remember the higher a denominator is the smaller it will be in size...multiplying a fraction means you are multiplying the number of cuts and sections that is why the size gets smaller.
Multiply the numerator (top) and the denominator (bottom) by any non-zero number and you will have an equivalent fraction. Change either one of them and you will have a fraction that is not equivalent.
That is true.
the quotient is always greater than the either fraction because any time when you multiply either number with 1 you will get the whole entire universe heheheheh
The product will be greater than either of the factors.
The product of two rational numbers, X and Y, is smaller than either of them if both are between 0 and 1.
