Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need to memorize multiplication tables. For basic example, think of multiplying like taking a number and adding it a certain number of times.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05*4 = 20, you can think of this as 5+5+5+5 =20 or 4+4+4+4+4 = 20. The five is added 4 times and the 4 is added 5 times. It doesn't matter which way you approach the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes because multiplication and addition are "commutative" meaning that you can do it in any order. But watch out for division and subtracting as different rules apply
