Learning time
Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.
When you are solving multiplication equations where you are multiplying by 5, you can use skip counting to help you solve these equations. So, to do this, you are going to think about counting up five more each time you're counting. So, if you're starting at zero, you can go 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and keep continuing going up five each time. So, if we are going to look at the equation 4 x 5, the second number in the equation is 5. So that means we are going to be skip counting or counting up by five each time. The first number is 4 which means we need to skip count four times or go up four groups of five, okay? So, if we start at zero, we're going to count up four groups. So, we're going to go 5, 10, 15, 20. 20 is the fourth group of five that we've skipped counted so that means that 4 x 5 = 20.
