Well understand x4 times tables
Before you’re going through these Four times tables practice quiz & worksheets, you’ll need several examples. To explain 4 times tables, let us use the simple example that follow… Michael bought 5 packs of sweets with different colours; orange, purple, green, red and yellow. Each pack of sweet has 4 candies inside. How many candies does Michael have in all?
As usual we’ll turn around several methods to solve this small problem and find the sum of candies the child has bought. The fact that each pack has 4 candies clearly shows that we facing “4 times tables”; assuming that the solution is “5 packs times 4 candies” (5 x 4 = 20 candies), but let’s begin with array method to demonstrate it.
Multiply by 4 using array repartition
“5 packs with 4 candies per pack” means that we will include information in the array as follow:
- “5 packs of sweets” are represented by five rows;
- “4 candies per pack” means that we have four columns.
By counting all the different sorts of candies in the array, we find a total of 20 candies. 5 rows x 4 columns = 20 cells – 5 packs x 4 candies = 20 candies. This is showing one more time that find a multiplication sum using an array is very easy to do and simple method to apply for times tables.
Multiply by 4 using repeated addition
With the same previous problem to solve, we’ll also use repeated addition. Multiplying “5 packs of sweets” by “4 candies per pack” using repeated addition give the following expression:
5 x 4 = 20
That’s really an evidence, for 5 packs of 4 candies we obtain: 4 candies + 4 candies + 4 candies + 4 candies + 4 candies = 20 candies.
Multiply by 4 using equal group
While expressing 5 x 4 with repeated addition, we also see how to represent our problem using equal group. Remember that we wrote the following expression: 4 candies + 4 candies + 4 candies + 4 candies + 4 candies = 20 candies. We thus have “5 groups” of “4 candies” as you can see in the picture bellow:
Multiplication by 4 using number line
Count skip 4 numbers give this: 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, and 48.
For that, we can display 4 times tables in a number line as follow:
On this number line, you can see that we hop 5 times over the interval. Those hoping represent the number of sweets’ packs (5).
0 to 4 = 1st pack; 4 to 8 = 2nd pack; 8 to 12 = 3rd pack; 12 to 16 = 4th pack; 16 to 20 = 5th pack.
Understanding this example will make Four times tables practice quiz & worksheets very easy to handle.
