   PowderBlue Box   SandyBrown Box   SlateBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   Blue Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     SeaGreen Box   PowderBlue Box   SandyBrown Box   SlateBlue Box   BlueViolet Box

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


Here's another example:
