   GreenYellow Box   Tan Box   Indigo Box   Aquamarine Box   CadetBlue Box   DarkCyan Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     MediumOrchid Box   GreenYellow Box   Tan Box   Indigo Box   Aquamarine Box   CadetBlue Box

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


Here's another example:
