• so pertend you were having a problen with a division question. Division is literally multiplication but backwards so if the question was 12 divided by 3 how can you make 12 my multiplication
• You can make 12/3 into multiplication by asking the question: "What times 3 is 12?" It's the same way with addition and subtraction. The difference/quotient added/multiplied to the number that subtracts/divides another is the number that was being subtracted/divided.
• How would we know if the little line is a certain number?
• Hmm...I think they'd make it on a graph or label the lines or something. But in this case, he just said the vales...
