Orchid Box   CornflowerBlue Box   Coral Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   SaddleBrown Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     RoyalBlue Box   Orchid Box   CornflowerBlue Box   Coral Box   DarkOliveGreen Box

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

Lavender Box   Aquamarine Box   Purple Box   MidnightBlue Box   MediumBlue Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     Lavender Box   Aquamarine Box   Purple Box   MidnightBlue Box   MediumBlue Box   Lavender Box   Aquamarine Box   Purple Box   MidnightBlue Box   MediumBlue Box

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

Lavender Box   Aquamarine Box   Purple Box   MidnightBlue Box   MediumBlue Box    Lavender Box   Aquamarine Box   Purple Box   MidnightBlue Box   MediumBlue Box
