=
          
 
   CadetBlue Box   DarkMagenta Box   DarkBlue Box   Wheat Box   Sienna Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     Turquoise Box   CadetBlue Box   DarkMagenta Box   DarkBlue Box   Wheat Box

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


Here's another example:

   DarkGreen Box   SaddleBrown Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkKhaki Box   Blue Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     DarkGreen Box   SaddleBrown Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkKhaki Box   Blue Box   DarkGreen Box   SaddleBrown Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkKhaki Box   Blue 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:

          

          

   DarkGreen Box   SaddleBrown Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkKhaki Box   Blue Box    DarkGreen Box   SaddleBrown Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkKhaki Box   Blue Box
