  # Solve Multiplication Problems

In this worksheet, students will solve multiplication problems. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Solve Multiplication/Division Problems

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

When we have to work out lots of repeated additions of the same amount, it is much easier to multiply.

Example A dog has 4 legs.

How many legs will 12 dogs have?            We need to work out 12 lots of 4

which is quicker than adding 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + ... etc. twelve times.

This is 12 x 4

12 x 4 = 48

12 dogs will have 48 legs

Though the one below might mess up that calculation since he has only three legs! Let's have a go at some questions now.
