   Wheat Box   DarkKhaki Box   Chartreuse Box   Peru Box   Cyan Box   Aquamarine Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     DarkOrange Box   Wheat Box   DarkKhaki Box   Chartreuse Box   Peru Box   Cyan Box

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


Here's another example:
