### How do you estimate the product by rounding the greater factor 2 x 6254?

2 x 6300 = 12,600 The actual answer is 12,508.

### Explain whether it is easier to estimate the product 13.72 x 47.28 by using compatible numbers or by rounding each factor to the nearest whole number?

Compatible numbers would be easier. Rounding gives you 14 x 47. Compatible numbers could be 13 x 50 which would be closer to the actual product.

### How do you estimate the product by rounding the greater factor 9 x 540?

9 x 500 = 4500 and 9 x 600 = 5400, so you know the answer will be close to halfway between those two numbers. The actual answer is 4860.

### When both factor in a multiplication problem are rounded up estimate the product the estimate is an?

The answer would be an overestimate.

70 x 20 = 1400

### Why does the product of two fractions has the same value before and after dividing the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor?

If you are dividing the numerator and the denominator by the same number (the GCF), it is the same as dividing the fraction by 1, which will leave it unchanged and create the same product.

### What is factor and what is a product?

A factor multiplies with another factor to create a product.

### What does first factor mean when rounding?

It means to express a number as the product of its factors. Factors are either composite numbers or prime numbers (except that 0 and 1 are neither prime nor composite).

### What property 1 times the factor the factor is?

The identity property of multiplication states that any time a factor is multiplied by 1, the factor is unchanged.

60 x 50 = 3000

A product.
