PowderBlue Box   DarkOrange Box   Brown Box   RosyBrown Box   DarkKhaki Box   Aquamarine Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     Khaki Box   PowderBlue Box   DarkOrange Box   Brown Box   RosyBrown Box   DarkKhaki Box

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

DarkGoldenrod Box   Sienna Box   DarkMagenta Box   Purple Box   DarkBlue Box   Magenta Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     DarkGoldenrod Box   Sienna Box   DarkMagenta Box   Purple Box   DarkBlue Box   Magenta Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Sienna Box   DarkMagenta Box   Purple Box   DarkBlue Box   Magenta 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:

DarkGoldenrod Box   Sienna Box   DarkMagenta Box   Purple Box   DarkBlue Box   Magenta Box    DarkGoldenrod Box   Sienna Box   DarkMagenta Box   Purple Box   DarkBlue Box   Magenta Box

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

Thistle Box   DodgerBlue Box   Olive Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Indigo Box   MediumPurple Box    Thistle Box   DodgerBlue Box   Olive Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Indigo Box   MediumPurple Box    Thistle Box   DodgerBlue Box   Olive Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   Indigo Box   MediumPurple Box
