Try this problem.

We start with two boxes, multiply by three boxes, and now have six boxes. We take our two boxes three times to get six boxes:

In order to do basic multiplication, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

2×1 = 2 2×2 = 4 2×3 = 6 2×4 = 8 2×5 = 10 2×6 = 12 2×7 = 14 2×8 = 16 2×9 = 18 2×10 = 20 2×11 = 22 2×12 = 24

The following exercise will help you learn the above equations and what they mean. Please take your time: take whatever time you need to learn the material.
