MATHS QUESTION (place value)

I can’t get a question right for my math assessment.

(something has to do with place value?) It’s this:

You’re given the information that 31 x 156 = 4836. Use this to work out the following and show your working out:

310 x 156 =

4,836 / 1560 =

3.1 x 15,600 =

48,360 / 3100 =

If you want help with this, you really need to post your working and answers. Also are all of them multiplications, or are some of them divisions?

I don't know the answer, which is why I posted this here.
Thank you, I have edited the mistake, two of them are multiplications and the other two are divisions.

To get you started, you can write down that 310 x 156 = (31 x 10) x 156. Does that give you a clue as to what the right hand side should be?
