A few examples are given are given below to show how they are related to each other.
(i) The picture shows 6 cats arranged in groups of 2. It shows a multiplication fact: 3 × 2 = 6
It shows a division fact: 6 ÷ 2 = 3 From the multiplication fact 2 × 3 = 6, we get the division fact 6 ÷ 3 = 2 
(ii) The picture shows 10 bears arranged in groups of 2. It shows a multiplication fact: 5 × 2 = 10
It shows a division fact: 10 ÷ 2 = 5 From the multiplication fact 2 × 5 = 10, we get the division fact 10 ÷ 5 = 2 
Multiplication Fact 2 × 3 = 6
3 × 2 = 6 5 × 6 = 30 6 × 5 = 30 8 × 7 = 56 7 × 8 = 56 9 × 4 = 36 4 × 9 = 36 7 × 7 = 49 
Division Fact 6 ÷ 3 = 2
6 ÷ 2 = 3 30 ÷ 6 = 5 30 ÷ 5 = 6 56 ÷ 7 = 8 56 ÷ 8 = 7 36 ÷ 4 = 9 36 ÷ 9 = 4 49 ÷ 7 = 7
