    Parts of speech of times

    Dear teacher,

    I have a few examples of "times", and am confused about its parts of speech. Could you help me? Thanks.


    1 Scientists working with NASA’s Kepler satellite reported Thursday that they might have spotted a planet just 1.5 times the diameter of Earth around a Sun-like star 2,000 light-years away.
    2 Ginger is three times as hot as cumin, but not as hot as chilipower.
    3 The tiger relies on its strength, but man uses his wisdom. The tiger can only use its fangs and claws, but man can use other things; so the tiger’s strength is equiavalent to one, while man with his wisdom has a hundered times its strength.

    Re: Parts of speech of times

    It's multiplication. 3 times 5 equals 15. (3 * 5 = 15)

    In the first example, this new planet is 1.5 times the size of earth. If earth is 1000 miles in diameter, then this planet is 1500.
