Understand products as expressions that can be interpreted in terms of a quantity and a scaling factor. Determine the relative size of a product by its factors. Reason abstractly about the size of a product when multiplying by a fraction. Interpret multiplication of fractions less than 1 as division. In general, multiplying by a fraction less than 1 will yield a product less than its factors, multiplying by a fraction = 1 will yield a product equal to the quantity, and multiplying by a fraction greater than 1 will yield a product greater than its factors.
