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.

When you multiply a fraction times a fraction the product will be smaller than either factor Why?

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.

Describe how to write a fraction greater than 1 as a mixed number?

Given an improper fraction (a fraction greater than 1), we divide the numerator by the denominator. The quotient is the whole number part of the mixed number. The remainder is the numerator of the fraction part. The denominator is the same as the denominator of the original fraction. For example: Given the fraction 17/5. 17 divided by 5 is 3 with a remainder of 2. The answer is 3 2/5.
