Multiplication(A better version of Addition) Multiplication is the same as repetitive addition. When you see 3 x 3 you can just add 3 + 3 + 3 and get 9. That’s the best thing about multiplication is when you get to big numbers you don’t have to do repetitive addition anymore you can just multiply.
Multiplication (Commutative Property) In multiplication it doesn’t matter if you have 3 x 4 or 4 x 3 because the answer will always be the same. Its unlike division where it DOES NOT matter in which order you have the two numbers. Your answer will always be the same, even when the numbers get really large.
