If you multiply a number by a fraction less than 1, the resulting product will be smaller than the original fraction.

Imagine, if you had half a pizza and you ate one-half of that. You would multiply 1/2 by 1/2 and get an even smaller number. The result would be 1/4.

On the other hand, if you multiply a number by a mixed number that is larger than one, the result would be larger than when you started.
You can't multiply fractions without multiplying
