Reteach: Multiplication as Comparison

4 x 7 = 28 can be read as a comparison between the numbers in the equation. It helps to remember that the equal sign really means "is the same as."

4 groups of 7
  • 4 x 7 is the same as 28.
  • 28 is the same as 4 x 7.
  • 28 is the same as 4 sets of 7.
  • 28 is 4 times as many as 7.

As the Commutative Property of Multiplication tells us, the order of the factors does not matter, so it is also true that:

7 groups of 4
  • 7 x 4 is the same as 28.
  • 28 is the same as 7 x 4.
  • 28 is the same as 7 sets of 4.
  • 28 is 7 times as many as 4.

8 x 3 = 24 can be read as a comparison between the numbers in the equation. Fill in the missing information:

8 groups of 3
  • 8 x 3 is the same as   24  
  • 24 is the same as 8 x   3  
  • 24 is the same as 8 sets of   3  
  • 24 is 8 times as many as   3  

As the Commutative Property of Multiplication tells us, the order of the factors does not matter, so it is also true that:

3 groups of 8
  • 3 x 8 is the same as   24  
  • 24 is the same as 3 x   8  
  • 24 is the same as 3 sets of   8  
  • 24 is 3 times as many as   8

Independent Practice: Multiplication as Comparison

Write the comparisons shown by each multiplication equation below. The first one is done for you.

8 x 9 = 72

72 = 8 x 9

72 is 8 times as many as 9

72 is 9 times as many as 8

3 x 6 = 18

18 = 3 x 6

18 is 3 times as many as 6

18 is 6 times as many as 3

2 x 5 = 10

10 = 2 x 5

10 is 2 times as many as 5

10 is 5 times as many as 2

6 x 4 = 24

24 = 6 x 4

24 is 6 times as many as 4

24 is 4 times as many as 6

3 x 7 = 21

21 = 3 x 7

21 is 3 times as many as 7

21 is 7 times as many as 3

4 x 8 = 32

32 = 4 x 8

32 is 4 times as many as 8

32 is 8 times as many as 4

6 x 2 = 12

12 = 6 x 2

12 is 6 times as many as 2

12 is 2 times as many as 6

8 x 5 = 40

40 = 8 x 5

40 is 8 times as many as 5

40 is 5 times as many as 8

4 x 5 = 20

20 = 4 x 5

20 is 4 times as many as 5

20 is 5 times as many as 4

6 x 7 = 42

42 = 6 x 7

42 is 6 times as many as 7

42 is 7 times as many as 6

7 x 8 = 56

56 = 7 x 8

56 is 7 times as many as 8

56 is 8 times as many as 7

9 x 4 = 36

36 = 9 x 4

36 is 9 times as many as 4

36 is 4 times as many as 9
