Topic: Multiplication and Division
What is MULTIPLICATION?
The simple explanation is that multiplication is when you take any number and add it together
specified number of times.
As you may have noticed the multiplication symbol is represented by a “x“.
Every equation must have coefficients, which are the multiplicand (a quantity which is to
be multiplied by another) and multiplicator (the number by which another number,
the multiplicand, is multiplied). They must also have a product which is the answer you get
after multiplying the multiplicand and the multiplicator.
