**Questions and comments:**

- I think 42 x 14 is the same as 84 x 7 because if you split 84 you get 42 and if you split 14 you get 7.
- Why does it say that 42 x 14 = 84 when the answer is really 588?
- I think the answer to 42 x 14 is the same as 84 x 7, and the same with division.
- I understand that 42 x 14 = 84 is not what it’s trying to say. It’s trying to say that 42 x 14 is the same as 84 x 7.
- Does it link to doubles?
- Now I see! 42 ÷ 84 = 2 and 7 ÷ 14 = 2.
- Maybe the equals sign with the line across means does not equal.
- I think the equals sign with the cross means the same thing.
- Would it work with subtraction and addition?
- What if you use decimals?
