Multiplication Application

Why is it so important to learn our multiplication facts? 
I bet you don't realize how frequently you use multiplication to solve day to day problems.

For example, Raana was preparing for her birthday and needed to buy goodies for her party. She invited 26 friends to join in her celebration. When she went to Target she found the most precious notepads she was certain her friends would treasure. They came in packs of 6. How many packs does Raana need to purchase to have enough for all of her friends? 

Multiplication is a skill you will be grateful to have perfected! 

Can you create some word problems that require multiplication for a friend to solve? 
Your word problem must include at least 3 sentences. Practice you writing and vocabulary skills by writing strong sentences!
