Susan Rothman answered
Multiplication is like addition because you are adding the same number the amount of times that you are multiplying it by the other number. Let's say you are multiplying 3 and 2. That is 3 times 2, or 3 x 2. Adding the number 3 a total of two times, gives you the answer. You add the number 3 to the number 3, and that is the number three 2 times, or 3 times 2. The answer is 6.

It is just like adding because when you add it gets to a bigger number and when you multiply it get to a bigger number. It is not different from adding.
