Problem Sums Involving Multiplication:
1. 24 folders each has 56 sheets of paper inside them. How many sheets of paper are there altogether?
Solution:
We can add 56 sheets 24 times
OR
Since multiplication is repeated addition we can multiply 56 and 24 to get the answer.

Therefore, altogether there are 1344 sheets.
2. A carton holds 24 packets of biscuits. Each packet has 12 biscuits. How many biscuits can be packed in 45 cartons?
In one carton we can pack 24 × 12 biscuits.
In 45 cartons, we can pack 24 × 12 × 45 biscuits.
24 × 12 = 288
Therefore, altogether there are 12,960 biscuits.
3. There are 226 pencils in a packet. How many pencils are there in 212 such packets?
Number of pencils in 1 packet = 226 Number of packets = 212 Total number of pencils = 226 × 212 = 47912 |

5 7 8
+ 2 0 2 3 0
2 0 8 0 8
Hence, 72 bags will contain 20,808 apples.
5. A car travels a distance of 345 km every day. What distance will it travel in a year?

Distance travelled by the car in 365 days = 345 km × 365
3 4 5
× 3 6 5
1 7 2 5
2 0 7 0 0
+ 1 0 3 5 0 0
1 2 5 9 2 5
Hence, the car will travel 1,25,925 km in a year.
Consider the following Examples on Word Problems Involving Multiplication:
1. A book costs $ 67. How much will be paid for 102 such books?
Solution:
The cost of one book = $ 6 7 6 7
Number of books = 1 0 2 × 1 0 2
The cost of 102 books = $ 67 × 102 1 3 4
= $ 6834 + 6 7 0 0
6 8 3 4
Therefore, cost of 102 books = $ 6834
2. A bicycle costs $ 215. How much will be paid for 87 such bicycles?
Solution:
The cost of one bicycle = $ 2 1 5 2 1 5
Number of bicycle = 8 7 × 8 7
The cost of 87 bicycles = $ 2 1 5 × 8 7 1 5 0 5
= $ 6834 + 1 7 2 0 0
1 8 7 0 5
Therefore, cost of 87 bicycles = $ 18705
3. The monthly salary of a man is $ 2,625. What is his annual income by salary?

= $31,500 5 2 5 0
+ 2 6 2 5 0
3 1 5 0 0
Therefore, annual income = $ 31,500
4. A chair costs $ 452 and a table costs $ 1750. What will be cost of 15 chairs and 30 tables?
Solution:
(i) Cost of one chair = $ 452
Cost of 15 chairs = $ 452 × 15
= $ 6,780
(ii) Cost of one table = $ 1,750
Cost of 30 tables = $ 1,750 × 30
