   Chocolate Box   DarkOrchid Box   Fuchsia Box   Gold Box   Indigo Box   MediumSlateBlue Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     MediumBlue Box   Chocolate Box   DarkOrchid Box   Fuchsia Box   Gold Box   Indigo Box

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


Here's another example:
