Today, you will apply your multiplication and division methods to word problems.
To work out if the question wants you to multiply or divide, try drawing a picture of what the question is asking you.
If you are drawing lots of pictures, this usually means you need to multiply. If you are sharing something out, this means you need to divide.
Sometimes the numbers are quite big, so you don't need to draw out the whole picture- you can work out what operation it is before you've finished!
