Worksheet Overview

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




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!


three legged dog
