Example: Describing multiplication sentence vs repeated addition for equal groups
We have 3 groups of apples and 4 apples per group, given the product as 12.
Fill in the blank spaces describing the addition and multiplication sentences.
- There are ___ groups of apples
- ___ + ____ + ____ = 12
- ____ x ____ = 12
- It is clear that there are 3 groups of apples.
- Next, We obtain our addition sentence by repeatedly adding sizes of apples in the three groups thus 4 + 4 + 4 = 12.
- Lastly, to obtain our multiplication sentence, we simply multiply the number of groups by the group size, I. e. 3 x 4 = 12.
