# 5 Blue – Multiplication and Division multi-step word problems

Hello 5 Blue,

This week, in Maths we have been consolidating our learning on multiplication and division methods and we ended this unit by looking at multi-step word problems.  I know some children may have found this as a challenge but let’s see if you can answer these questions independently on the blog to show your understanding:-
