This means that interchanging the fractions does not affect the answer.
(ii) By observing the 3 products given in the solution of
Example 32, we come to know that the value of the
fractions in the products are as follows
(a) The product of two fractions whose value is less
than 1 i.e. the proper fractions is less than each of
the fractions that are multiplied.
(b) The product of a proper and an improper fraction
is less than the improper fractions and greater than
the proper fraction.
(c) The product of two improper fractions is greater
than each of the two fractions.
