Learning time

There are some terms that you need to learn to help you understand multiplication. So, to help us today, we're going to look at this multiplication equation, 3 x 2 = 6. So, the first two numbers in this equation, 3 and 2, these are called the factors. They're the two numbers that you are multiplying together to get your answer. In between these numbers, in between 3 and 2, we have the multiplication symbol that looks like an X. And then we have an equal sign which is just the same as it is in an addition equation or subtraction equation where that leads you to the answer. And the answer in this multiplication equation is 6. We call the answer in a multiplication equation the product. So that is some terms to help you understand multiplication.
