Use the number line to find the value of 20 multiplied by four.
00:00:07.078 --> 00:00:16.288
Then we’ve got five possible answers: 24, 60, 80, 100, or 40.
00:00:17.068 --> 00:00:22.628
In this question, we’re being asked to multiply a multiple of 10 by a one-digit number.
00:00:23.058 --> 00:00:25.658
And we’re told to use the number line to help us.
00:00:26.048 --> 00:00:27.818
Let’s take a moment to look at this number line.
00:00:28.458 --> 00:00:32.628
We can see that it’s labeled from zero all the way up to 100.
00:00:33.258 --> 00:00:35.358
And each interval is worth 10.
00:00:35.768 --> 00:00:40.798
That’s why each of the numbers that’s marked is a multiple of 10: zero, 10, 20, and so on.
00:00:41.678 --> 00:00:46.378
Now, how can we use this number line to help us find the answer to 20 times four?
00:00:46.798 --> 00:00:52.568
Well, we can think of this question as asking us to find four jumps of 20 on our number line.
00:00:53.298 --> 00:00:58.868
Now, how many intervals of 10 would we need to cross to make one jump of 20?
00:01:00.078 --> 00:01:02.888
How many numbers would we have to count along our number line?
00:01:03.878 --> 00:01:05.298
One, two.
00:01:05.638 --> 00:01:11.748
Because each interval is worth 10, we move along two numbers for every 20.
00:01:12.588 --> 00:01:18.178
Now, the reason why we’re saying this and not just counting along the number line is that we can actually work out the answer before we start.
00:01:18.798 --> 00:01:32.698
If we move along two numbers for every jump of 20 and we need to find four 20s, then the number of numbers that we’re going to move along our number line is the same as two times four.
00:01:33.208 --> 00:01:38.158
We’re going to end up eight numbers along, which is the same as eight intervals along.
00:01:39.068 --> 00:01:47.048
And because as we’ve said already each interval is worth 10, we’re going to arrive at a number that’s worth eight times 10.
00:01:47.678 --> 00:01:50.378
We can predict we’re going to end up at the number 80.
00:01:51.148 --> 00:01:53.988
Let’s actually use our number line the way it’s supposed to be used.
00:01:54.218 --> 00:01:58.168
We’re going to count along in 20s four times.
00:01:58.328 --> 00:02:00.318
And let’s see whether we end up at 80.
00:02:01.358 --> 00:02:09.508
So we’ll say zero and then 20, 40, 60, 80.
00:02:10.348 --> 00:02:11.328
We were right!
00:02:11.758 --> 00:02:15.938
We predicted that we’d need to move eight numbers along our number line to find the answer.
00:02:16.538 --> 00:02:23.688
And because our numbers increase by 10 each time, we predicted that the number we’d end on would be worth eight times 10.
00:02:24.458 --> 00:02:31.388
If two times four equals eight, we know 20 times four must have a value of 80.
