**Arrays** and **area models** can be used to represent multiplication sentences, where the number of rows and the number of columns are the factors,

and the total number of objects, or the area, is the product.

The product of two whole numbers can be represented by an array where the number of rows and the number of columns are the factors, and the total number of objects is the product.

The array shown has 6 rows, 9 columns, and 54 total chickens.

So, the array represents a multiplication number sentence where 6 and 9 are the factors, and 54 is the product.

Therefore, the array represents 6 × 9 = 54.
