Look at the calculation. Write a number in the box to make the calculation correct.
Let’s listen to the question one more time. “Look at the calculation. Write a number in the box to make the calculation correct.” We have to find the missing number in this calculation and write it in the box. Let’s read the calculation: 12 equals what times six? What do we multiply six by to get 12?
Another way to think about the question would be to say how many sixes are there in 12. Two groups of six make 12. So the missing number is number two. 12 is equal to two times six. There are two groups of six in 12.
