DarkOrchid Box   DarkGreen Box   SteelBlue Box   Indigo Box   DarkOrange Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     Yellow Box   DarkOrchid Box   DarkGreen Box   SteelBlue Box   Indigo Box

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

Sienna Box   Turquoise Box   Cyan Box   DarkMagenta Box   SlateBlue Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     Sienna Box   Turquoise Box   Cyan Box   DarkMagenta Box   SlateBlue Box   Sienna Box   Turquoise Box   Cyan Box   DarkMagenta Box   SlateBlue 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:

Sienna Box   Turquoise Box   Cyan Box   DarkMagenta Box   SlateBlue Box    Sienna Box   Turquoise Box   Cyan Box   DarkMagenta Box   SlateBlue Box
