Introduction
 Work on the board:
 Ask the students, how can we solve this question mentally?
 Collect their feedback and tell them that with the help of multiplication table, we can solve it.
 Ask the students to say multiplication table of 4 loudly.
 Ask the students to stop the table, when the number ‘20’ comes.
 On completion, write on the board: 4 times 5 = 20, 4 x 5 = 20
 So the required answer is 5.
