### When does multiplying by a fraction give an answer that is larger than that original answer?

A fraction can be larger than 1, for example, 4/2 is a fraction (which can be simplified to 2). Only a fraction that is larger than 1, multiplied by another number gives you a larger number.

### When you have a numerator from a fraction that is a negative and a numerator of a fraction that is positive is your answer negative or positive?

It depends on what you are doing with the fractions. Assuming that the entire fraction is the same sign as its numerator, if multiplied or divided, the answer would be negative. If the fraction is being added, it would depend upon which fraction is larger. The larger fraction will transfer its sign to the answer. When subtracted, it depends on which fraction is negative. Examples of multiplication: (1/2)x(-1/4)= -1/8 Division: (1/2)/(-1/4)= -2 Addition: (1/2)+(-1/4)= 1/4 Subtraction Ex. 1: (1/2)-(-1/4)= 3/4 Subtraction Ex. 2: (-1/2)-(1/4)= -3/4 Hope this helps you out.

### When you divide a unit fraction ( less than 1) by a whole number is the quotion larger or smaller than the fraction?

The answer will depend on the sign of the fraction.(1/4) / 2 = 1/8, which is smaller.(-1/4) / 2 = -1/8, which is greater.

### How do you compare two fractions whose numerators are the same?

If the fractions have the same numerator (top number), then the fraction with the larger denominator (bottom number) is the smaller fraction, which implies that the fraction with the smaller denominator is the larger fraction. For example with 1/2 and 1/4, it can be easily seen that 1/2 is the larger of the two.
