Here are some boats.
Let's arrange them into groups to count them.

Archie wants to arrange some apples in an array.
He has made a full row and started the other rows. Can you fill in the rest?
How many apples in a row?
There are 5 apples in a row.
How many rows are there?
There are 4 rows.
5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20
There are 20 apples altogether.
Make sure you have the same number of things in each row.
Try this interactive activity to see if you can answer the question by making your own array.
