    you can do this in a ton of ways... 15.2 = 30 10.3=30 5.6 = 30 that 15.3 was a typo on my part :)

    multiplication is just addition done alot of times 3(5) = 15 means 5+5+5 ; 5 added together 3 times 3(-5) = -15 means (-5) +(-5) +(-5) = -15 -3(-5) = 15 means to do the opposite of addition or: -(-5) -(-5) -(-5) = +(5)+(5)+(5) = 15
