#### Worksheet Overview

When we have to work out lots of repeated additions of the same amount, it is much easier to multiply.

Example

A dog has 4 legs.

How many legs will 12 dogs have?

We need to work out  12 lots of 4,

which is quicker than adding 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + ... etc. twelve times.

This is   12 × 4.

12 × 4 = 48

12 dogs will have 48 legs.
