Lesson

Do you remember how multiplication can be thought of as repeated addition?

Answer the following:

Write this addition as a multiplication.

$10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10$10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10

Find the value of $8\times10$8×10.

In this video we see how rows and columns (called an array), can be used to solve multiplication.

Which of these number sentences describe the array?

There may be more than one correct answer.

$16\times8=2$16×8=2

A$8\times2=16$8×2=16

B$16\times2=8$16×2=8

C$2\times8=16$2×8=16

D$16\times8=2$16×8=2

A$8\times2=16$8×2=16

B$16\times2=8$16×2=8

C$2\times8=16$2×8=16

D

Remember!

We get the same answer whichever way we look at our array.
