00:00:01.280 --> 00:00:05.870
It takes 39 minutes for a car to be cleaned at a carwash.
00:00:06.290 --> 00:00:10.570
How many minutes does it take to clean 40 cars?
00:00:12.420 --> 00:00:14.310
What information are we starting with?
00:00:15.730 --> 00:00:29.020
We know it takes 39 minutes to clean one car and we need to do that 40 times: 39 minutes for one plus 39 for the second car.
00:00:31.200 --> 00:00:38.330
Adding the 39 to itself 40 times will take a very long time.
00:00:38.530 --> 00:00:40.010
There has to be a better way.
00:00:42.620 --> 00:00:45.090
The better way would be to multiply.
00:00:45.520 --> 00:00:49.290
Multiplication is repeated addition.
00:00:50.600 --> 00:01:05.530
This means instead of adding 39 to itself 40 times, we can take the 39 minutes it takes for one car to be cleaned and multiply that by the 40 cars we need to wash.
00:01:07.420 --> 00:01:14.210
Starting all the way on the right, we multiply zero times nine equals zero.
00:01:15.430 --> 00:01:21.580
Then, we move to the tens’ place and we multiply zero times three — zero.
00:01:22.840 --> 00:01:28.670
Now, we’ll be multiplying with the four in the tens’ place times the nine in the ones’ place.
00:01:28.800 --> 00:01:32.480
Four times nine equals 36.
00:01:32.760 --> 00:01:36.120
We write down our six and we carry our three.
00:01:37.460 --> 00:01:42.160
From there, we’ll multiply four times three which equals 12.
00:01:42.520 --> 00:01:47.450
And then, we will add the additional three that we have already carried over.
00:01:47.950 --> 00:01:51.970
Four times three is 12 plus three is 15.
00:01:52.600 --> 00:01:54.910
And we’ll write down our 15.
00:01:56.790 --> 00:01:58.380
Now, we need to add.
00:02:00.320 --> 00:02:19.870
Starting all the way on the right, zero plus zero equals zero, zero plus six equals six, five plus zero equals five, one plus zero equals one.
00:02:21.400 --> 00:02:28.770
Now that we finish multiplying, we have to think about what does this mean: 1560.
00:02:29.860 --> 00:02:37.260
Well, we multiplied 39 minutes per car times 40 cars that we need to clean.
00:02:37.860 --> 00:02:45.470
This 1560 represents the number of minutes it would take to clean 40 cars.
00:02:46.460 --> 00:02:51.620
Our final answer is then 1560 minutes.
