Basic Multiplication Lesson 7: Number 7

Here's an easy example:

7

=
7
 
              
×
  
=
              
 
   Pink Box   DarkViolet Box   DodgerBlue Box   RoyalBlue Box   Brown Box   Green Box   Turquoise Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     Maroon Box   Pink Box   DarkViolet Box   DodgerBlue Box   RoyalBlue Box   Brown Box   Green Box

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


Here's another example:

   YellowGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BlueViolet Box   CadetBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   Chocolate Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     YellowGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BlueViolet Box   CadetBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   Chocolate Box   YellowGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BlueViolet Box   CadetBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   Chocolate Box

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

              

              

   YellowGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BlueViolet Box   CadetBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   Chocolate Box    YellowGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BlueViolet Box   CadetBlue Box   SteelBlue Box   Chocolate Box
