Is the product of two positive numbers greater than either number?

A positive number is any number greater than zero. 1 is a positive number, so is 2, 2.5, 3.14159, 11, 11.25 etc 0.5 is a positive number. The product of two positive numbers is the result of multiplying them together. * 2 x 3 = 6 (the product). In this case the product is greater than either number. But... * 0.5 x 0.25 is 0.125. ~In this case the product is actually smaller than either of the two numbers! * Or 0.5 x 10 = 5 . Here the product is greater than 0.5 but smaller than 10. So the answer is ...sometimes!


The product of 2 consecutive even numbers is 12 more than the square of the smaller number Find the numbers?

The product of the page numbers on two facing pages of a book is 600 what are the numbers?

They are page numbers 24 and 25 . ( 24 x 25 = 600 ) The easiest way to solve this is by trial and error. Multiply two consecutive numbers; if the product is too low, try larger numbers, if it is too high, try smaller numbers. You can also write an equation and use the quadratic formula. The equation in this case is x(x+1) = 600. Re-written for use of the quadratic equation, it becomes x2 + x - 600 = 0. This will give you a positive and a negative solution; only the positive solution is sensible in this case.
