Word problems on multiplication for fourth grade students are solved here step by step.

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.

[Sometime, more than one calculation is required.] **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.**

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
