**Short Note on Word Problem in Multiplication**

In multiplication word problems, you often need to identify groups or repeated quantities. Look for clues like "**each**," "**total**," or "**altogether**" to know when to multiply. The key is breaking the problem down into smaller parts: first understand what the question is asking, then determine which numbers represent the groups and how many times the group is repeated. By multiplying these numbers, you find the total amount.
