Turquoise Box   Empty Box   Peru Box   Indigo Box   Magenta Box   Lavender Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   YellowGreen Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     Maroon Box   Turquoise Box   Empty Box   Peru Box   Indigo Box   Magenta Box   Lavender Box   DarkOliveGreen Box

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

Thistle Box   DeepPink Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkOrchid Box   Chocolate Box   GreenYellow Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     Thistle Box   DeepPink Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkOrchid Box   Chocolate Box   GreenYellow Box   Thistle Box   DeepPink Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkOrchid Box   Chocolate Box   GreenYellow Box

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

Thistle Box   DeepPink Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkOrchid Box   Chocolate Box   GreenYellow Box    Thistle Box   DeepPink Box   SandyBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkOrchid Box   Chocolate Box   GreenYellow Box

We start with eight boxes, multiply by three boxes, and now have twenty-four boxes. We take our eight boxes three times to get twenty-four boxes:

RoyalBlue Box   MediumBlue Box   BurlyWood Box   Blue Box   MediumVioletRed Box   Yellow Box   MediumOrchid Box   DarkGreen Box    RoyalBlue Box   MediumBlue Box   BurlyWood Box   Blue Box   MediumVioletRed Box   Yellow Box   MediumOrchid Box   DarkGreen Box    RoyalBlue Box   MediumBlue Box   BurlyWood Box   Blue Box   MediumVioletRed Box   Yellow Box   MediumOrchid Box   DarkGreen Box
