A number multiplied by 1 is equal to the original number.

So:

For fractions where the numerator (top) is LESS than the deonominator (bottom), the product will be LESS than the original number, because the fraction has a value of LESS than 1.

For fractions where the numerator is MORE than the denominator, the product will be MORE than the original number because the fraction has a value of MORE than 1.

For fractions where the numerator and denominator are the same, the product will be the same as the original number because the fraction has a value equal to 1.
