=
        
 
   MediumSeaGreen Box   Olive Box   Chartreuse Box   Wheat Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     DarkSeaGreen Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   Olive Box   Chartreuse Box

We start with four boxes, multiply by one box, and now still have four boxes.


Here's another example:

   DarkBlue Box   SeaGreen Box   Aqua Box   Cyan Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     DarkBlue Box   SeaGreen Box   Aqua Box   Cyan Box   DarkBlue Box   SeaGreen Box   Aqua Box   Cyan Box

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

        

        

   DarkBlue Box   SeaGreen Box   Aqua Box   Cyan Box    DarkBlue Box   SeaGreen Box   Aqua Box   Cyan Box
