Use the picture to find all the missing numbers. There are what groups. There are what cars in each group. There are four times two equals what cars in total.

This is a three-part question. We have to find all three missing numbers. And we’re told to use the picture to help. In the first part of the question, we have to work out how many groups there are. In other words, how many groups of cars can you see? Let’s count them. Here’s one group, two, three, four. There are four groups of cars.

Next, we need to count the number of cars in each group. Let’s use some counters to help. This group has one, two cars. There are two cars in each group. There are four groups of two cars. So, our multiplication sentence is four times two.

Now, what we need to do is work out the total number of cars. Let’s count in twos. Two, four, six, eight. Four times two is eight. There are four groups. There are two cars in each group. There are four times two equals eight cars in total.
