To solve six times 14, Jacob and Chloe break apart 14 into 10 and four. Six times 14 equals six times 10 plus four. Who has found the correct answer?

Chloe says it is equal to 60 plus 24. Jacob says it is equal to 60 plus four. Let’s calculate the answer to find out who’s correct. First, we need to multiply six by 10. And then, we need to multiply six by four. Six times 10 is 60. And six times four is 24. So, to find the answer to this calculation, we would need to add together 60 and 24. This is the answer that Chloe gave. The person who found the correct answer is Chloe.
