Top Secret Info
There are special words that will
signal what to do… all you need to
do is look for them! They will let
you know when you need to add,
subtract, multiply and divide. Don’t
get fooled by distracters along the
way!

Secret Words to Multiply
If you see the words:
• Times
• Compute the area
• Product
• Find the volume
• Percent
• “of” (fractions)
• % of discount
• % of tax
x
• Times as many as
• In all
• Altogether
Then you will probably want to Multiply!

You go to the store and you buy a new shirt and
pants. The they costs \$6.98 for the shirt and \$8.23
for the pants for a total \$15.21. What percent of
tax will you pay if tax is 6%?

Once you have the total price of \$15.21, you can
figure out the percent if the tax is 6%. Multiply
\$15.21 x .06 (because .06 is what you have when
you move the decimal two spaces.)

\$15.21             x              .06                   =      .9126
or .91 cents
