any proper fraction ( numerator smaller than denominator) will do this
product of a fraction less than 1 and a whole number greater than or less than the whole Number
A proper fraction is less than 1. Any positive number multiplied by a positive number less 1 will be less than itself. In multiplying two proper fractions, each one is being multiplied by a number less than 1.
A number multiplied by 1 is equal to the original number. So: For fractions where the numerator (top) is LESS than the deonominator (bottom), the product will be LESS than the original number, because the fraction has a value of LESS than 1. For fractions where the numerator is MORE than the denominator, the product will be MORE than the original number because the fraction has a value of MORE than 1. For fractions where the numerator and denominator are the same, the product will be the same as the original number because the fraction has a value equal to 1.
It is not possible to tell.
The product is less than either factor.
The number is 7. 7 x 0.8 = 5.6. 5.6 +14.4 = 20.
It depends: If the whole number is positive then the result is less than the whole number, eg ½ × 2 = 1 < 2 If the whole number is negative then the result is greater than the whole number, eg ½ × -2 = -1 > -2
