### What is multiplication?

Multiplication is one of the main operations of arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). It has an infinite number of uses in day to day life, which is why this calculator was created. Multiplication can be thought of as a repeated addition. If we want to add up the number 5, three times, we can write: 5 + 5 + 5. This is pretty easy to write, but if we wanted to add up the number 5 one hundred times, it would take up a lot of space. This is what multiplication is. Instead of writing out 5 one hundred times, we can write 5 x 100 (pronounced 5 times 100, also written as 5 * 100 sometimes). Similarly, we can write our previous equation as 5 x 3 = 15 (which of course is the same as 5 + 5 + 5). The result of a multiplication operation is called a product. We can say: the product of 5 and 10 is 50.
