**Anonymous**, Friday, August 27, 2010 at 7:46pmhow did you know it was multiplicaton instead of division or addition

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, August 27, 2010 at 7:59pmYou could add.

First friend = 3 cookies

Second friend = 3 cookies

Third friend = 3 cookies

Fourth friend = 3 cookies

and so on

But it's certainly quicker to multiply the number of friends by the number of cookies each should get.
