I do not know how to explain it but here is what i mean

3 times 9 = 27 = 9+9+9 OR 3+3+3+3+3+3+3+3+3

so Basically times is a quicker version of times but they are made to look shorted sometimes it can be handy when the question is like this


If it is like this in a test add how many numbers (the 450s) then you can shorten it to make it like this

450 times 3 witch makes 1350

witch can save you time in a mental maths test
