Two easy ways to count objects in rows and columns - Counting objects is all fun and games until you get too many things to count. Like, imagine you in your teacher's shoes, who have to count you and all your classmates every day. So, now, we will discuss easier ways to count objects present in rows and columns. 1. By multiplication, we can count objects quickly and correctly. Let's suppose you have 3 rows, where you and your class-fellows sit in the classroom. Each row has 10 students sitting right behind each other. So, you can just multiply 3 with 10, and you will find the total number of students in your class without counting all of them one by one. 2. Take an array of numbers, and let us consider the previous example again in a different way. You are sitting in a pair of three in each row. There are three pairs in total, and you have 10 pairs in the whole classroom. So, now we multiply 3 by 10, and you will get 30. 30 are the total students in your classroom. With these math worksheets we have students actively learn to use rows and columns in math.
