In mathematics, multiplication is a binary operation between two elements in a set, in a broad sense. Depending on what set of elements are interacting, there are many types of multiplications with different properties. The multiplication sign is represented by the "x" ($\times$) or a medium-sized dot $(\cdot)$. Multiplication is the inverse of division.

Multiplication is achieved by adding a number to itself as many times as the second number has value. For example, $4\times4$ would equal $4+4+4+4$, which in turn equals $\boxed{16}$. This is called repeated addition.

The term for repeated multiplication is an "exponent".
