# Lesson 2 Interpret Representations of Multiplicative Comparison

Let’s make sense of representations of problems with “times as many.”

## Warm-up How Many Do You See: Times as Many

How many do you see? How do you see them?

## Activity 1 Represent “Times as Many”

Jada has 4 times as many cubes as Kiran. Draw a diagram to represent the situation.

Diego has 5 times as many cubes as Kiran. Draw a diagram to represent the situation.

Lin has 6 times as many cubes as Kiran. How many cubes does Lin have? Explain or show your reasoning.

## Activity 2 Diagrams to Solve Multiplicative Comparison Problems

Here are four sets of descriptions, diagrams, and equations that compare pairs of quantities.

Match each description to a diagram and an equation that represent the same situation. Be prepared to explain your reasoning.

## Practice Problem

## Problem 1

Han read 4 books during the summer. Priya read 3 times as many books as Han.

Draw a diagram that represents the situation.

Write an equation that represents the situation.
