Worksheet Overview

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?

 

Answer

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
