Solution to

A multiplication problems consist of a multiplicand, a multiplier, and a

Frame 1-4

product. The multiplicand (top number) is the number to be multiplied.

The multiplier (second number) is the number doing the multiplying. The

remainder (or difference)

answer is called the product. The numbers being multiplied together (the

multiplicand and the multiplier) are sometimes referred to as "factors."

minuend

contained in another number. If you were to divide 18 by 6, you might

ask yourself, "How many groups of 6's are there in 18?" Your answer

multiplicand

would be 3. The answer is called the quotient. The number that is being
