## this is how to multiply

Multiplication is one of the four basic operations in elementary arithmetic and can be considered repeated addition. It's the mathematical operation of scaling one number by another number. If you want to know how to multiply by the addition or the long multiplication method, just follow these steps.

**Solve through repeated addition.** Knowing that each of the four groups have three objects, add 4 three times. *4 + 4 + 4 = 12*

- You can also find 4 groups of 3 instead. This will give you the same answer. Just add up the numbers in the problem
*3 + 3 + 3 + 3*and you will get 12, the same answer.
