    Attn: Math Teachers

      After getting a bit of industry experience, I have started thinking about each subject with a perspective of "why I was taught this?" Thinking of the same question, I somehow managed to jot down few words as a definition of MULTIPLICATION;

       

      Adding 'n' same numbers 'y' times is called MULTIPLICATION

       

      As far as I understood, there is no concept of "multiplication" in mathematics. All the time, we are doing addition but to do complex addition, we have developed a rule which we are calling as multiplication.
