If the fractions are both proper fractions ... equivalent to less than 1 ... thenthat's always true ... the product is always less than either factor.
Any whole number, n, can be written as the fraction n/1.Multiplication of a fraction, p/q by a whole number n is the same as multiplying p/q by n/1.Furthermore, the process of multiplying proper fractions and improper fractions is the same and that gives the equality of the two processes.
You solve it just like they are proper fractions
No, it is not.
Mixed numbers cannot be turned into proper fractions, but they can be made into improper fractions by multiplying the integer (# on the side) by the denominator (bottom), and then adding that number to the numerator (top).
it means to multiply a fraction
If you express the whole number w, as w/1, then there is no difference whatsoever.
It depends on what you want to convert to proper fractions. Not all things can be converted to proper fractions.
Dissimilar fractions may or may not be proper fractions.
No 9 is not prime. It's factors are 1,3,9. Proper factors: 1,3. Factors are numbers that are multiplied with other numbers to get a product. Proper factors are factors of a number except for itself. No 9 is not prime. It's factors are 1,3,9. Proper factors: 1,3. Factors are numbers that are multiplied with other numbers to get a product. Proper factors are factors of a number except for itself. Composite numbers are numbers with more than 2 factors and more than 1 proper factor. Prime is the opposite of composite.
You don't. Proper fractions are less than one, improper fractions are greater.
