In this problem, use multiplication as your operation.

Solution:

2 (leg of a duck)

x 5 (given quantity of duck)

=10 legs

To illustrate the problem:

Make 5 groups of two legs of a duck. Assume that each group is the duck (and {} as the leg of duck.)

({}{}) ({}{}) ({}{}) ({}{}) ({}{})

Now, count the number of legs {} in total, and it's 10.
