Happy Tally:Welcome to the fastest counting town in the west.

Quick:I don’t know about that. I’ve been known to sum up numbers quickly in the Columnies.

Addie Stranger:Not now, Quick. We are here to figure out multiplication products.

Dirty Digit:What do you want with multiplication products?

Addie Stranger:Well, we have become pretty good with addition in the Columnies. We heard products are the results of adding numbers faster. So, we came to explore and find some products.

Dirty Digits:You have to be more specific. What are the products’ factors?

Addie Stranger:What do you mean products’ factors?

Granma Total:Well, you need factors to get a product.

Addie Stranger:Why do you need factors to give me the answer to where I can find products?

Granma Total:When two numbers are multiplied, the answer is called the product. The two numbers that are multiplied are called factors of the product.

Dirty Digit:Yeah. We have a lot of products around here. But, fact families are kind of particular about knowing which factors go with which product.

Quick:We asked for a simple answer.

Granma Total:The product is the answer.

Quick:Answer, to what? All these words and your answers are not adding up.
