Multiply 4 x 8, you have as answers [ 36,   32,   28 ] for you to choose the correct answer.

Hey, I will not stress myself here.

I'll simply add 6 four times.

6 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 24

So,   4 x 6 = 24

Another wonderful way of multiplying a number by 4 is to multiply that number by 2 two times, then add the products.

Here we go: 4 x 6 = (4 x 2) + (4 x 2) = 12 + 12 = 24
