**Multiplication** - A mathematical operation that indicates how many times a number is added to itself. It is signified by the multiplication signs (x) or (*).

**Division** - A mathematical operation that indicates how many equal quantities add up to a specific number. It is signified by the division signs (÷) or (/).

A general example to help you recognize patterns and spot the information you're looking for

Multiplication $$2 * 4 = 8$$ $$10 * 10 = 100$$ Division $$9 / 3 = 3$$ $$24 / 3 = 8$$We use these operations every day.
