3.1: Multiplying with a One-digit Number 

3.1.1: Representing Multiplication as Repeated Addition. 

Definition of multiplication: It is known as repeated addition. It is denoted by ‘×’ or ‘.’, and the parts of multiplication include ‘multiplicand’, ‘multiplier’ and ‘product’, which is the result.

Rules: Multiplication of integer rules: 

Example: Find as repeated addition. 

Sol.: Here, there are three groups, and each group has four dogs.  

3 × 4 = 12 

3.2.1: Representing Multiplication as Rectangular Array and the Area of a  
            Rectangle.  

Array: An array is formed by arranging a set of objects into rows and columns. Each column must contain the same number of objects as the other columns, and each row must have the same numbers as the other rows. 

Example: Find 215 × 3. Draw an array to find the answer. 

Hundreds Tens Ones 
          0 0      
     0 0         
0 0 


0 0 0 0 0
 0 0 0 0 0
 0 0 0 0 0 
2 H × 3 1 T × 3 5 O × 3 

Sol.:  215 × 3 

3 × 215 = 5 × 3 + 10 × 3 + 200 × 3 

  = 15 + 30 + 600 

  = 645 

Example: Find 215 × 3 by using an area of a rectangle. 

Sol.:   

Area of whole rectangle                 

      = l × w 

      = 215 × 3 

Area of whole rectangle = 645 

      = Area of rectangle C + area of rectangle B + area of rectangle A 

215 × 3 = 5 × 3 + 10 × 3 + 200 × 3 

       645 = 15 + 30 + 600 

       645 = 645 

3.1.3: Multiplication Using the Place Value of Each Digit. 

Place value: Place value is the value of each digit in a number. 

Place Value Chart: 

Example: Multiply 3417 × 5 using the place value of each digit. 

Sol.:  

3.2: Multiplying by a Two-digit Number 

3.2.1: Multiplying by Two-digit Numbers. 

Example: Find the product of 50 × 9. 

Sol.: = 50 × 9 

Example: Find the product of 24 × 200. 

Sol.: 24 × 200 = 24 × 100 × 2 

                   = 2400 × 2 

     = 4800 

Example: Round 3839 and 7220 to nearest hundreds. 

3.2.2: Estimate the Products. 

Rounded: 26 is 30 when rounded to nearest tens. 

Sol.: 

Estimate: A number close to the exact number is an estimate. 

Example: Estimate the product of 272 and 21. 

Sol.: 

Example: Estimate the product of 32 × 215. 

Sol.:      32 is closer to 30. 

215 is closer to 220. 

So, 30 × 220 = 6600 

3.3: Modeling Division with Regrouping 

3.3.1: Model Division with Regrouping in Hundreds, Tens and Ones. 

Regrouping: To regroup means to rearrange groups in place value to carry out an operation. 

Example: Find 468 ÷ 3. 

Sol.: Follow the steps to divide. 

Step–1:  Begin with the hundreds digit. 

4 hundred ÷ 3 = 1 hundred with remainder 1 hundred 

Regroup the hundreds  

1 hundred = 10 tens 

Add the tens. 

10 tens + 6 tens = 16 tens 

Step–2:  Divide the tens by 3. 

     16 tens ÷ 3 = 5 tens 

     Regroup the tens.  

     1 tens = 10 ones 

     Add the ones. 

     10 ones + 8 ones = 18 ones 

Step–3: Divide the ones by 3. 

  18 ones ÷ 3 = 6 ones 

So, 465 ÷ 3 = 156 

3.4: Dividing by a One-Digit Number 

Definition: Division is the inverse of multiplication or repeated subtraction. It is denoted by ‘÷’. 

Rules:  

Example: Find 8 ÷ 4. 

3.4.1: Finding the Quotients and the Remainder. 

Quotient: A quotient is an answer to a division problem. 

Example: Fine the quotient of 4258 ÷ 2. 

Sol.: 

Remainder: A remainder is the number left over when a number cannot be divided evenly or entirely. 

Example: Find the remainder of 5084 ÷ 4 

Sol.:  

3.4.2: Estimation of the Quotients. 

To estimate the quotient, we first round off the divisor and the dividend to the nearest tens, hundreds or thousands and then divide the rounded numbers. 

Example: Divide 242 ÷ 22.  

Sol.: Round to the nearest ten. 

Estimated Quotient = 12 

3.5. Real -world problems 

Word problem:  A word problem is a few sentences describing a ‘real-life’ scenario where a problem needs to be solved through a mathematical calculation. 

3.5.1: Solving Word Problems on Multiplication and Division. 

Example:  The cost of a chair is $450. Find the cost of such 120 chairs. 

Sol.: Cost of a chair = 450 

Number of chairs = 120 

Cost of 120 chairs = $54,000 

Example: 12 candies are divided among 3 children. How many candies will each child get? 

Sol.: 

Example: The cost of 124 train tickets was $24,648. Find the cost of one ticket. 

Sol.: Number of train tickets = 124 

       Cost of 124 train tickets = $24,048 

       Cost of 1 train ticket = 24,648 ÷ 124 

The cost of one train ticket is $198.7. 

3.5.2: Multi-Step Word Problems. 

Multi-step word problems are a mix of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, all written using whole numbers. 

Example: 

A pair of jeans costs $89, a jeans jacket costs twice as much. What is the total cost of a jeans jacket and 5 pairs of jeans? 

Sol.: Given pair of jeans costs = $89 

                                           5 pairs of jeans = 5 × 89 

                                                            = $445 

          A jeans jacket cost twice of jeans = 89 + 89 

                                                            = $178 

        Total = 445 

          178 

       $623
