You would turn the mixed number into a fraction by multiplying the whole number(the one in the mixed fraction) by the denominator and then you add the numerator to the product. You would then put that number you get and out it over the denominator. For the other whole number, you would put it over one and multiply the two fractions!

"percent" means for every hundred, or alternatively, out of 100. Finding some percentage of a number is multiplying that number by the fraction of the percentage over 100. eg to find 53% of a number, multiply by the fraction 53/100

it is the Same Number Just 2,3,4.... Times As Much

You are just multiPlying the top two number then the bottom two numbers

If the numerator (top number) is more than the denominator (bottom number), then the fraction is greater than one.

The product will be greater than either of the factors.

The only generalisation posible is that it will always be a rational number. The product can be positive or negative; it can be a fraction or an integer, it can be larger or smaller.

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.

The only thing that you can be certain of is that the answer will be a number. It could be irrational or rational, it could be a proper fraction, integer or improper (mixed) fraction.

product of a fraction less than 1 and a whole number greater than or less than the whole Number

The absolute value of the answer will be greater than the absolute value of the original.

It is larger because the two whole numbers form a greater, larger number when multiplpied together. It is smaller when u multiply a whole number by a fraction because a fraction is a decimal and u get a smaller number when multiplying a number like 1/7 of 5

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.

It can be greater than or less than it.

When multiplying a fraction by a whole number you would rewrite it as a mixed number or convert the whole number to that number over one!

The numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the whole number.
