In this activity, you will be using your multiplication skills.
Knowing your times tables facts by heart will be really useful to complete these questions.
Remember that multiplication is commutative. This means we can multiply numbers in any order and get the same product.
The product is the number we get when we multiply two numbers together.
Let's take a look at how this works.
If we wanted to multiply 6 x 5, there are two possible calculations.
6 × 5 = 30
5 × 6 = 30
Either way, the product is still 30.
Let's try an example question together.
Work out 3 × 5
To work this out, we could either do 3 × 5 or 5 × 3.
3 × 5 = 15
5 × 3 = 15
Now it's your turn to try some questions like this.
