• In example let's just say that 12 divided by 4 = 3 and 12 divided by 3 = 4? Is that make sense so you don't do that like that you have to go slow and get how you get that? Is that make sense? Thank you for listening?
• Um... What? I couldn't understand you. But 12 divided by 3=4, so that means 3 times 4 is 12. That also means 12 divided by 4 is 3. Because it is a fact family. So yes. It does make sense.
• what is 300x12?
• First what you would do is 12x3 and that is 36. Last you would add the zeros and since there are two zeros you would add the two zeros into the 36+the zeros in the 300 and you would get 3600
