No, the product of two positive mixed numbers can never be less than one.

No

If one of or both of the numbers are negative, then yes.

yes because it is greater than 1

No. A mixed number must be greater than 1, and two numbers that are greater than one that are multiplied together end up being greater that either number by itself.

No.

The product of two mixed numbers is always greater than one (assuming that both of the mixed numbers themselves are greater than one.)

It can!The difference between 31/2 and 31/3, for example, is 1/6 which is less than 1.

No. The product of two negative numbers is positive.

It can't be one. Mixed numbers are greater than one.

It can't be one. Mixed numbers are greater than one.

2/2 = 1 Mixed numbers are greater than one.

Sure. How about [ 1-3/5 ] and [ 1-2/5 ]. Their difference is [ 1/5 ].

No.The gcf of two numbers is LESS THAN OR EQUAL than their lcm.The gcf of two DIFFERENT numbes is LESS THAN their lcm.

There is only one example where the sum of two mixed numbers can be equal to two. 1/1 + 1/1 All other combinations of mixed numbers will be greater than two.

If the GCF of the two numbers is 1, the LCM will be their product. IF the GCF is greater than one, the LCM will be less than the product.
