Solved examples:

1. There are 15 pencils in one packet. A shopkeeper has 60 such packets in his shop. How many pencils does he have in his shop?

Number of pencils in one packet = 15

Number of packets in the shop = 60

Therefore, total number of pencils in the shop = 60 × 15

                                                                   = 900 pencils

2. A garland has 32 flowers. How many flowers are there in 45 such garland?

Number of flowers in a garland = 32

Number of garlands = 45 

Therefore, total number of flowers in 45 garlands = 45 × 32

                                                                        = 1440 flowers
