**Let's see what's really going on when we multiply two numbers.**

**This means that you have two groups of 3!**

**Put the two groups together... How many triangles do you have?**

**Count them... One, two, three, four, five, six!**

**So, our answer is:**

**Let's do another one! This one has the numbers switched around.**

**This means that you have three groups of 2!**

**Put the three groups together... How many squares do you have?**

**Count them... One, two, three, four, five, six!**

**So, our answer is:**

**Hey, that's the same answer we got with 2 x 3! But, we put the six together a different way. Look at them both again to see the difference!**
