This activity is about multiplying by 10.

**Example**

There are 4 bundles of balloons here.

Each bundle has 10 balloons.

We want to work out how many balloons there are in total.

What are **4 lots of 10?**

**Answer**

In total, there are 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 40 balloons.

What is 4 x 10?

4 x 10 = 4**0**

10 x 4 = 4**0**

Let's try another example.

Below, there are 6 pairs of hands.

There are 10 fingers on each pair of hands.

We want to know how many fingers there are in total.

What are **6 lots of 10**?

__Answer__

In total, there are 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 60 pairs of hands.

What is **6 times 10**?

6 x 10 = **60**

10 x 6 = **60**

Let's try some questions now.
