NARRATOR: Hello Snoot.

What’s cooking?

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: My goodness!

The kitchen’s got pests?

What kind of pests?

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: Matter munchers...

That’s no good.

How many are there?

There are 1... 2... 3... 4... 5 in that cupboard.

Looks like there’s 5 in that cupboard.

I’d say there are 5 in that cupboard as well.

How many is that altogether?

There are 3 cupboards and 5 matter munchers in each.

So that’s 3 times 5, which equals 15.

At least I think that’s how many there are.

FIN: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: Fin to the rescue!

I see you’ve brought some tractor beam traps with you - just what this situation needs.

Each trap holds 5 matter munchers.

Go trap those munchers!

Well done Fin.

These traps look nice and full.

If each one holds 5 munchers, how many are there altogether?

FIN: Me... Wa... To... Ooh.

NARRATOR: There are 5 add 5 add 5, which equals... 15!

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: I know Snoot!

You got the same answer just now by multiplying 3 times 5.

Another way to work it out is to take 3 fives and add them all together: 5 add 5 add 5.

The answer’s just the same!

BOTH: Aha!

NARRATOR: It looks like you bought one too many traps, Fin...

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: Fin! Really...
