**Multiplication** is a way to add a number to itself a certain number of times.

In a multiplication sentence, the numbers that are multiplied

are called

**factors**, and the answer is called the

**product**.

3 | × | 5 | = | 15 |

factor | × | factor | = | product |

Use repeated addition to find the product.

3 × 5 is the same as three 5's added together.
