2 Factors & Products4 x 6 = 244 and 6 are factors – the numbers being multiplied together.24 is the product – the answer to a multiplication problem.
3 Estimate Estimate – to make a good guess by rounding. In the problem 73 x 6, round 73 to70 and DO NOT round the single digit number of 6!This would give you a new problem of70 x 6.You can then use the basic math fact of 7 x 6 = 42 to help you get the product.Simply count the number of zeros in the factors and add them to the end of the basic math fact answer. The product is 420!
4 Multiple A multiple is the product of any two whole numbers. For example: 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15 are multiples of 3.3x1=33x2=63x3=93x4=123x5=15
5 Properties of Multiplication Zero Property of Multiplication – the product (answer) of any number times 0is 0! x0=0 or 9x0=0Identity Property of Multiplication – the product (answer) of any number times 1 is that number! 4x1=4 or 8x1=8Commutative Property of Multiplication – two numbers can be multiplied in any order and the product (answer) is the same. 4x2=8 and 2x4=8.
6 Properties of Multiplication Associative Property of Multiplication –(3x2)x4 = 3x(4x2)You can change the grouping of the numbers you multiply! You will still get the same product (answer).
