Could someone explain what multiplication comparisons are? An example of the problem is:
Northview bought 6 computers
Southview bought 2 computers

Using multiplication, compare the number of computers the two schools bought. Express the comparison 2 ways.

Northview bought 3 times the number of computers as Southview.

Southview bought 1/2 the number of computers as Northview.

Well, I hit the wrong key for the second one. It should read Southview bought 1/3 the number of computers as Northview.
