### QUESTION 1 of 10

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 × 4.

12 × 4 = 48

12 dogs will have 48 legs.

A horse has 4 legs.

How many legs will 8 horses have?

(Just write the number.)

A triangle has 3 sides.

How many sides will 12 triangles have?

There are 11 players in a football team.

Each of them has 4 shirts.

How many shirts do they have in total?

Isaac has 8 apples.

He cuts each apple into quarters (4 pieces).

How many pieces does he have in total?

A tube of tennis balls contains 4 balls.

How many tennis balls does he buy?

A car has 4 wheels.

How many wheels will there be on 12 cars?

There are 3 lollipops in a bag.

How many lollipops does she buy?

Apples cost 8p each.

How much will 12 apples cost in pence?

(Just write the number.)

Liz and her 5 friends each write 4 postcards.

How many postcards are written?

This flower has 5 petals.

How many petals will there be on 12 similar flowers?

• Question 9

Liz and her 5 friends each write 4 postcards.

How many postcards are written?

24
EDDIE SAYS
First of all for this one you need to work out how many people are writing postcards. We have Liz and then 5 others writing which means 1+ 5 = 6. Each person then writes 4 postcards so we can do the following sum to work out the total. 6 × 4 = 24 postcards
• Question 10

This flower has 5 petals.

How many petals will there be on 12 similar flowers?

60
