Mathematical multiplication is an arithmetic operation that combines two numbers, known as factors, to produce a third number called the product. It is denoted by the symbol “×” or “*”. Multiplication is used in various areas of mathematics, science, and everyday life. Some common uses of multiplication include:

  1. Repeated Addition: Multiplication can be seen as a shortcut for repeated addition. For example, 3 × 4 can be understood as adding 3, four times: 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12.
  2. Scaling and Proportions: Multiplication is used to scale quantities up or down. It is also used to maintain proportions in various mathematical and real-world scenarios.
  3. Area and Perimeter: Multiplication is used to calculate the area of a rectangle or the perimeter of a polygon by multiplying the length and width or sum of all sides, respectively.
  4. Calculating Total Cost: When determining the total cost of multiple items or services with the same price, multiplication is used. For example, if each item costs $10 and we want to buy 5 items, the total cost would be 5 × $10 = $50.
  5. Probability: In probability theory, multiplication is used to calculate the probability of independent events occurring together. For example, the probability of rolling a 6 on a fair six-sided die twice in a row is 1/6 × 1/6 = 1/36.
