# Multiplication Formula

In arithmetic a method of finding the product of two or more values is called multiplication it is denoted by ‘×’ and also sometimes by a dot (.). The repeated addition of one number with respect to another is to create a situation of multiplication of two numbers. If x is multiplied by y, then it means either x is added to itself ‘y’ number of times or vice versa.

The properties of multiplication are:

- Commutative property
- Associative property
- Distributive property
- Identity property
- Zero property

## What is Multiplication Formula?

From the above explanation, the P(A∩B) formula is:

The commutative property is (A × B = B × A)

The associative property is [A × (B × C) = (A × B) × C]

Distributive property is [A × (B + C) = (A × B) + (A × C)]

Identity property is (A × 1 = A)

Zero property is (A × 0 = 0)

## Solved Examples Using Multiplication Formula

### Example 1:** **If Sam has 12 buckets and each bucket has 6 oranges. Then find the total number of oranges Sam has.

**Solution:**

To find: The total number of oranges Sam has.

the number of bucket = 12.

the number of oranges in each bucket = 6.

Using the Multiplication Formula,

Total number of oranges = (Number of buckets) × (Number of oranges in each basket)

= (12 × 6 ) Oranges

= 72 Oranges.

### Answer: 72 is the total number of oranges Sam has in all buckets.

### Example 2:** ** Evaluate 5 × (3 + 4) using the Distributive Property of Multiplication.

**Solution:**

Using the Multiplication Formula,

Distributive property is [A × (B + C) = (A × B) + (A × C)]

[5 × (3 + 4) = (5 × 3) + (5 × 4)]

= (5 × 3) + (5 × 4)

=15 +20

= 35.

### Answer: 35 is the answer to 5 × (3 + 4).
