# What number is 7 more than the product of 3?

"Product" is a binary operation. You cannot have a product of 3:
it has to be the product of 3 **
and another number**.

### The product of two primes?

Product of two prime numbers is a composite number. e.g. 2 x 3 = 6, 3 x 17 = 51 etc. But, why the result is a composite number? Definition of composite number makes it much clear: A number which can be expressed as the product of prime numbers is called a composite number. Also, it has more than two factors. So, product of two primes is a composite number.

### If you multiply a non zero whole number by a decimal less than one would the product be less than or greater than the whole number?

It depends on the signs of the two numbers. The answer is tricky when at least one number is negative because you have to remember that "less than" means "farther to the left on the number line" and NOT "greater in magnitude". E.g. -20 is less than -4 because -20 is farther to the left even though its magnitude (absolute value) is greater. There are four possible cases: Whole number and decimal are both positive…

### What is the product of 3 and 5?

15 is the answer. Product is what you get when you multiply two or more numbers together. In this case, the factors are 3 and 5. 3 x 5 = 15 (product) If there are more than one factors, the order in which they are multiplied has no effect on the product. This is the Commutative Law of Multiplication.

### 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…

### Are the multiples of primes composite or prime?

composite seeing as if a number has more factors than 1 and itself. If you multiply a prime number the product will be a composite number. This is because it will have more than two factors as the prime number will be a factor. Example The factors of 3 are: 3 : 1,3 3 multiplied by 3 is 9. The factors of 9 are: 9 : 1,3,9 Multiples of any numbers other than 1 are…

### When is the product of three integers larger than either of them?

"Either" is used for two. I'll assume that you mean "larger than ANY of them". The following applies to ANY real numbers.For TWO numbers, the product is larger than either of them if both numbers are greater than one. For THREE numbers, the product is larger than any of them if the two numbers OTHER than the largest number have a product greater than one. For example: 0.5, 3, 5 The largest number here is…

### Why is the product of two proper fractions less than either of the fractions?

A proper fraction is less than 1. Whenever you multiply something by a number < 1, the result (product) is less than the original number. So when you multiply a proper fraction by a number less one (such as another proper fraction, the product is less than the original proper fraction. The only time a product involving a given number is larger than the given number is when you multiply the given number by a…
