### QUESTION 1 of 10

When we work out lots of repeated additions of the same amount, we can multiply.

Example

A dog has 4 legs.

How many legs will 5 dogs have?

We need to work out 5 lots of 4,

which is quicker than adding 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4.

This is   5 × 4.

5 × 4 = 4 × 5 = 20

5 dogs will have 20 legs.

A bird has 2 wings.

How many wings will 6 birds have?

A star has 5 points.

How many points will 6 stars have?

Here are 2 rows of dogs.

There are 8 dogs in each row.

Use multiplication to work out the total number of dogs.

A cake has 10 candles.

How many candles will 7 of the same cakes have?

A plate has 3 bananas.

How many bananas will there be on 5 similar plates?

A car has 4 wheels.

How many wheels will there be on 5 cars?

Here are 5 rows of dogs.

There are 3 dogs in each row.

Use multiplication to work out the total number of dogs.
