Solution

## The correct option is D 48There are 4 friends and each of them gets 12 candies. So, total number of candies = 4 × 12 0 4×1 2––– 4 8––– Therefore, the number of candies you had = 48 Alternately, We know, multiplication is repeated addition. So, 4 × 12 is nothing but 12 + 12 + 12 + 12. But, 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = 10 + 2 + 10 + 2 + 10 + 2 + 10 + 2 = 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 40 + 8 = 48
