How we multiply in real life

The importance of multiplication

The importance of multiplication is that you don't have to keep adding the same number over and over. One example is 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6= 36. People, it's easier to multiply!

Example below

Five people went to a candy store. If five people bought 2 pieces of candy, how many pieces did they get?

5 people times two pieces of candy each, equals ten pieces of candy in all.
