Amy plants four rows of carrots. There are three carrots in each row. A rabbit eats two of the carrots. How many carrots are left?

We know Amy plants four rows of carrots. Here, we have four rows. And there are three carrots in each row. Now, we have four rows of three. This is the same as saying four multiplied by three or three multiplied by four. What is four lots of three? We could count in threes to find out, three, six, nine, 12. Four times three is 12. So Amy has 12 carrots. But we know that the rabbit eats two of them.

Amy has 12 carrots. And the Rabbit eats two. So how many carrots are left? 12 take away two equals 10. There are 10 carrots left. Amy had four rows of carrots. There were three carrots in each row. Four multiplied by three is 12. Amy started with 12 carrots. Then the rabbit ate two. 12 take away two equals 10. There are 10 carrots left.
