predict: I predict that I will need to use multiplication in this sum.

clarfiy: I have no words, sentences or phrases to clarify.

find the big questions: what is the missing number?

solve:

FIRST WAY- the main step in this sum is to go through your 4 times tables.

4,8,12,16,20,24,28,32,26.

then I count how many fours it took in 36: 9.

SECOND WAY- the simplest way, but if you are not confident with your 4 times tables you will need to do the first way aswell.

what is 36/4?:9.

THE ANSWER IS 6.
