Hi,

If 1 crore people (10 million) "each" are given 5 crore (50 million) "rupees" than what will the total "cost" of it? Don't directly tell the cost, kindly explain the calculation in steps.

Thanks

Let's do a smaller problem:

If 10 people "each" are given 5 "rupees" than what will the total "cost" of it? Don't directly tell the cost, kindly explain the calculation in steps.

Hi Yaksha. Instead, I'll explain one way of thinking about multiplication of two Whole numbers: Repeated Addition

2 × 3 = 6

Here are repeated-addition models for that multiplication:

3 + 3 = 6

2 + 2 + 2 = 6

We see that 2×3 may be visualized as adding two 3s OR adding three 2s.

Here's another example:

If each vehicle carries four passengers, how many passengers will seven vehicles carry?

We could add the passengers in seven vehicles.

4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4

Or, we can use multiplication.

7 × 4

I hope this helps you to answer Subhotosh's question.
