Hint:

### There are four operations in mathematics which we can use while solving a problem, one of them is multiplication. Multiplication is the repeated addition of the same number a number of times. It is also known as a method of finding product of two or more numbers by multiplying them. Here, we have to find the solve the word problem using multiplication.

## The correct answer is: 24

### In the question it is given that,

Betsy had 6 boxes of candles.

Each box had 4 candles.

The total number of candles Betsy had = (6×4) candles = 24 candles.

So, the total number of candles Betsy had 24 candles.

Therefore, the correct option is c, i.e., 24.

For simple multiplication we have to remember the multiplication table of one-digit numbers and for two-digit number we can find it using the multiplication table of one-digit numbers. Here, we have to find the product of one digit number.
