Multiplication, is when you give the same amount of pieces to everyone. Division, is when you divide among the pieces that you have. (This may sound confusing, here are a few examples.) Multiplication 9 x 3 = 27 There were 9 people. I gave them 3 books each. In total, if you count up all the books, it will total up to 27. Division 9 / 3 ( / = divided by) = 3 There are 9 books. I give each each person 3 books. If you divide, you will get 3 as your answer. 3 people got books.  Earn +20 pts
