The product would be less than the original number because its like multiplying by a percent. so 3 X .25= .75 or 3/4....Hope this helps!!!

3*1/4 is .75
.75 is less than 3.
Here...it's like this...lets put it in money
3=3 dollars
.75= 75 cents
.75 cents is less than 3 dollars, so the product is less than 3
(Hope it helped ^_^)
