Unit 6 Section 4 : Problems Involving Multiplication
We can use what we have learned over the last three sections to solve some types of problem.
Example Question
In a train there are 6 coaches each with 68 seats and two coaches each with 42 seats.
What is the total seating capacity of the train?
We need to multiply 6 × 68 and 2 × 42 and add the answers together.
(6 × 68) + (2 × 42) = 408 + 84 = 492 seats
