# Multiplication Help <3

39 views

Here is some help for people who are tricked by multiplication.

1x

For 1x everything is like the following:

2x1=2

So the other factor that is not 1 is the answer.

2x

For 2x everything is doubled.

For example,

4x2=8

Basically, you can just add 4+4!! Like 9x2 will be 18.

3x

Here is a song to remember:

3,6,9,

12,15,18,

21,24,27,

30

3x1 is 3, while 6x2 is 12, and so on.

4x

4 times is tricky. To remember, I count by twos: 2,4,6,8,

But I say every other one quickly.

For example,

2,4, 6, 8, 10, 12

Like that.

5x

You can just count by 5.

5, 10, 15, 20

It is easy because each number will end with 5 or 0.

6x

6x always stumps me.

The only way I got it was by memorizing. Here is a table:

 6x1 6 6x2 12 6x3 18 6x4 24 6x5 30 6x6 36 6x7 42 6x8 48 6x9 54 6x10 60

7x

Same thing.

Here is another table:

 7x1 7 7x2 14 7x3 21 7x4 28 7x5 35 7x6 42 7x7 49 7x8 56 7x9 63 7x10 70

8x

Same.

 8x1 8 8x2 16 8x3 24 8x4 32 8x5 40 8x6 48 8x7 56 8x8 64 8x9 72 8x10 80

9x

9x is simple.

Put your hands out all fingers.

Then if you are doing 9x3, put down your third finger. On the left side of the third finger, there are 2 fingers up. Those 2 are the tens place; 20. On the right side of the third finger, there are 7 fingers up. Those 7 are the ones place; 7. 20+7=27

10x

10x is basically 1x but add a zero at the end.

For example:

2x10=20

7x10=70

and so on...

Hope this helps!
