Green Box   Khaki Box   Teal Box   Turquoise Box   SpringGreen Box   BurlyWood Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     MediumBlue Box   Green Box   Khaki Box   Teal Box   Turquoise Box   SpringGreen Box

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

Gold Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkKhaki Box   GreenYellow Box   Peru Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     Gold Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkKhaki Box   GreenYellow Box   Peru Box   Gold Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkKhaki Box   GreenYellow Box   Peru Box

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

Gold Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkKhaki Box   GreenYellow Box   Peru Box    Gold Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkKhaki Box   GreenYellow Box   Peru Box
