# Level 3-4 Numbers - Multiplication and Division

Alright, let's talk about two superstars of maths - multiplication and division! After adding and subtracting, these are the cool moves everyone needs. To find the product of two numbers, just multiply them together. The numbers you can divide a number by are its factors, and there's a whole world of products, factors, and more waiting for you in KS3 Maths!

1.
What is 123 x 123?
12,300
14,401
