product of a fraction less than 1 and a whole number greater than or less than the whole Number
the answer is smaller than the whole number because you're taking a fraction of the second number. it's like multiplying by a decimal.
It can be greater than or less than it.
The factors are greater than the product.
If that is 14, then it will be greater than 6 as you are multiplying by a number greater than 1. If that is 1/4, then it will be less than 6 as you are multiplying by a (positive) fraction less than 1.
Not necessarily. -1/2 is a fraction which is less than 1.-10 * -1/2 = 5, a product which is bigger than -10.
No, the statement is not necessarily true.
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.
