Multiplying is the same as repeated addition.

Multiplication and addition are different mathematical operations with different rules. What is required for addition is not necessarily required for multiplication.

Yes,because multiplying is just short addition.

Yes of course. It is one of the four basic mathematical practices, namely addition, subtraction, multiplying, and division.

The distributive property of multiplication over addition.

This follows from the way in which addition and multiplication are defined. Addition requires like terms, multiplication does not. Incidentally, "like terms" are also required for adding algebraic terms but not for multiplying.

There is no difference in the procedure.

Multiplying a sum by a number gives the same result as multiplying each addend by the number and then adding the products together.

they aren't that different but the whole number needs to be converted for them to be the same

In some respects they are the same in others they are not. At a simple level, multiplication is simply repeated addition so that the two operations are the same. However, an inverse operation can be defined on the set of rational or real numbers for addition (it is called subtraction) but not in its entirety for multiplication (division by zero is not defined).

Multiplying. Yes, multiplication.

The distributive property of multiplication over addition.

Doubling a number means multiplying it by 2. This is equivalent to adding the number to itself. Halving means dividing by 2. This is equivalent to multiplying by 1/2 (or by 0.5); since this is not an integer, it can't be reduced to addition.

You can breed (have children). That is another form of multiplying!

The distributive property states that multiplying a sum by a number gives the same result as multiplying each addend by the number and then adding the products together.

if you have mixed numbers you make them into improper fractions before you multiply

Yes.

If you mean multiplying numerator and denominator by different numbers, the result is then a different ratio. If you mean variously multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same number on different occasions, the result is unchanged.

A number being multiplied is the "multiplicand"; the number doing the multiplying is the "multiplier", and the answer is called the, "product".
