Problem solving on multiplication will help us to get the idea on how to solve the basic multiplication statement problems.

**1.** Three groups of ponies are eating. There are 2 ponies in each group. How many ponies are there in all?

Number of groups of ponies = 3

Number of ponies in each group = 2

Therefore, total number ponies = 3 × 2 = 6

**2.** A coloring-pen cost 4 dollars. How many dollars Alex must have paid for 5 coloring-pens?

Cost of a coloring-pen = $4

Number of coloring-pens = 5

Therefore, cost of 5 coloring-pens = $4 × 5 = $20

**3.** Andy had 2 groups of toy kittens. There were 5 kittens in
each group. He put all the kittens in a basket. How many kittens were in the
basket?

Number of groups of toy kittens Andy had = 2

Number of kittens in each group = 5

Therefore, total number of kittens in the basket = 2 × 5 = 10

**4.** A table has 4 corners. In a classroom there are 8 tables.
How many corners do 8 tables have in all?

Number of corners a table has = 4

Number of tables = 8

Therefore, total number of corners 8 tables have = 4 × 8 = 32

**5.** John is 9 years old. His brother is 3 times older than
him. How old is John’s brother?

Age of John = 9 years

Number of times his brother is older than John = 3

Age of John’s brother = 9 × 3 = 27 years

**6.** Mary is 5 years old. Her mother is 7 times as old as she
is. How old is her mother?

Age of Mary = 5 years

Number of times her mother is older than Mary = 7

Age of her mother = 5 × 7 = 35 years
