### How do you know that a multiplication fact is correct?

There are a few ways to determine if a multiplication fact is
correct:
Repeated addition: since multiplication is simply
repeated addition at its base, you can reaffirm a multiplication
fact by repeatedly adding the number you're multiplying. With the
basic multiplication facts (i.e. times tables), this is possibly
the best option.
Division: Since it's simply the reverse of
multiplication, then you can just reverse the process to confirm
it.
Using multiple methods: There are multiple ways to do
multiplication than just the usual long multiplication done in
school, such as lattice multiplication, and Ayurvedic
multiplication (just to name the two I know). You can use these to
confirm a multiplication.
