11-22.

1. How many times larger is $3 · 3 · 3$ than $3 + 3 + 3$?

What is the product of $3\left(3\right)\left(3\right)$?
What is the sum of $3+3+3$?

$3\left(3\right)\left(3\right)=27$
$3+3+3=9$

How do these values compare?

The product $\left(27\right)$is $3$ times larger than the sum $\left(9\right)$.

2. How many times larger is $\frac { 1 } { 3 } + \frac { 1 } { 3 } + \frac { 1 } { 3 }$ than $\frac { 1 } { 3 } \cdot \frac { 1 } { 3 } \cdot \frac { 1 } { 3 }$?

Use the method in (a).
