# 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”

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

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

3. 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.

1.  A.Lin has 3 cubes.Jada has 2 times as many. B.Han has 3 cubes.Elena has 3 times as many. C.$2×3=6$ D.Priya had 5 cubes.Noah had 3 times as many. E.$3×5=15$ F.$4×4=16$ G. H. I.$3×3=9$ J.Mai has 4 cubes.Diego has 4 times as many. K. L. Set 1:

## Problem 1

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

1. Draw a diagram that represents the situation.

2. Write an equation that represents the situation.
