## What is repeated addition?

Repeated addition is a method of adding the same number multiple times to find the total amount. It's a fundamental concept that helps understand basic arithmetic and multiplication. It's often used to find the total amount when you have several groups of the same size.

## What is an example of repeated addition?

Let's say you have 3 groups of apples, and each group has 4 apples.

To find out how many apples you have in total, you can use repeated addition. You would add 4 (apples in each group) three times:

4 + 4 + 4 = 12

So, using repeated addition, you've found that you have 12 apples in total.

You can also use repeated addition to help children understand multiplication. You can explain that 5 x 3 is the same as 5 + 5 + 5 = 15.
