Section B: Practice Problems From Graphs to Multiplication
In this section, we learned about equal groups. We created drawings and diagrams to represent situations that involve equal groups.
Diego has 8 piles of socks. Each pile of socks has 2 socks.
We wrote multiplication expressions and equations to represent equal groups.
We learned that the numbers that are multiplied are called factors and the number that is the result of multiplying is called a product. In the equation
