Worksheet Overview

Notice that:

 

2 × 5 = 10    and    5 × 2 = 10

 

10 × 2 = 20    and    2 × 10 = 20

 

5 × 10 = 50    and    10 × 5 = 50

 

7 × 5 = 35    and    5 × 7 = 35

 

Multiplying can be done in any order

You always get the same answer.

 

*****WARNING*****

 

Dividing is different.

 

10 ÷ 5 = 2    but     5 ÷ 10 = ½

 

They are NOT the same.

Dividing cannot be done in any order.
