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!
