# Checking Division with Multiplication

Multiplication and division â€œundoâ€ one another. This means that when you ask yourself, â€œWhat is 12 divided by 3?â€ it is the same as asking, â€œWhat number multiplied by 3 gives 12?â€ You can use this method to catch mistakes in your division.

PROCEDURE: To check your division with multiplication, multiply the quotient of your division problem by the divisor and compare the result with the dividend. If they are equal, your division was correct.

SAMPLE PROBLEM 1: Divide 564 by 47, and check your result with multiplication.

 Step 1: Divide to find your quotient. Step 2: Multiply the quotient by the divisor. Step 3: Compare the product with your dividend.
