## Daisy chains of multiplication and division(You should see a blank window, ready for you to make your own daisy chains. Read directions below.)
A If you then want to multiply 6 by 4, start another arrow at 6.
How to use the tools: Then, in the next window, type the second factor (the number on the arrow.) When you click OK, the arrow will appear with the input numbers and resulting number (product or quotient) in the correct places.
To continue a calculation with another arrow, first click the endpoint of an existing calculation to start the next arrow, then click a new point. Instead of typing a new starting number, type the ending number for the previous result. Type the new number for your new calculation. The new arrow and results will appear. The DivArrow tool works the same way, only with division. - What is 31 x 94?
- What is 1/2 x 1/3?
- What is 1/2 divided by 1/3?
- What is 4 divided by 7?
- How could you get from 1 to 2/3 in one multiplication step and one division step, multiplying and dividing by whole numbers?
- How can you multiply 3/7 x 4/5 in steps of multiplying and dividing by whole numbers?
- How could you get from 3/4 to 2/3 in steps multiplying and dividing by whole numbers?
- Suppose you have a chain of multiplications and divisions. What multiplications and divisions will reverse the entire chain?
