X  Multiplication  X What is Multiplication?
Multiplication




Look at the balloons. 
                        


To find out how many balloons there are you could use repeated addition


4 red + 4 green + 4 blue = 12 balloons


Since all the groups are equal, you could use multiplication.  You have 3 groups of 4:

3 X 4 = 12 balloons


  • The numbers multiplied together are called factors
  • The answer is called the product
  • In the multiplication sentence above, 3 and 4 are factors and 12 is the product.
