The above picture shows 6 groups of 4, and not 4 groups of 6.
When we represent this in the multiplication statement, this is 6 fours or 6 X 4.
This is not 4 x 6 (known to be 4 groups of 6).
The answer to both question is of course 24, but when testing for the descriptor, this is 6 groups of 4, and hence 6 fours.
This diagram above will illustrate how we read this groups and number of items inside the group.
The above can help to understand division, or to understand division made simpler.
