FIG. 75a.

FIG. 75b.

Place the pink rectangle on top of the light green rectangle. What does this show you? (4 × 3 = 3 × 4) 4 We can show this in another way by taking one rod in each rectangle to form a cross.

FIG. 76a. 4 × 3 = 12

FIG. 76b. 3 × 4 = 12.

Either of these crosses will remind you of the equal rectangles you formed above and also of what you can read from a train showing 3 × 4 = 4 × 3. Make the cross for 6 × 2 = 12 and write all that you can read from it. 6 × 2 = 12 12 = 6 × 2

2= 6=
