Heres what she has been given (I don't have ascanner so i'll type it as one the sheet)

Use the multiplication facts given to work out the answer to the questions. Remember to show your working. The first one has been done for you.

2 x 8 =16 3 x 8 =24 what is 5 x 8? 16+24=40

Now that is the example

4 x 7 = 28..................what is 8 x 7?

3 x 8 = 24................. what is 9 x 8?

Now this is the way we did the first two

4 x 7 = 28 4 x 7 =28 what is 8 x 7? 28 + 28 = 56

3 x 8 = 24 6 x 8 = 48 what is 9 x 8? 24 + 48 = 72

now we have done it like this..

We subtract the first number ie 4 (x7) from the 8(x7) to get the next sun that goes in between.

it works for pretty much all the sums, some need subractions though, she is doing partitions at the moment.

any one else confused??

Am I being thick & not seeing a simple way round it & I'm making it more difficult?

Watch this thread sink :lol:
