   DarkOrchid Box   Empty Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   Thistle Box   DodgerBlue Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     MediumSlateBlue Box   DarkOrchid Box   Empty Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   Thistle Box

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