Does multiplication and division are related?

Yes, multiplication and division both are related to each other.

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 Math ororororororororor Division So, from the multiplication fact and division fact we came to the conclusion that they are related to each other.
