    What do you want to translate?

    how did you know it was multiplicaton instead of division or addition

  • math - ,

    You 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.
