Olive Box   Brown Box   Gold Box   DarkGreen Box   Turquoise Box   SlateBlue Box   HotPink Box   DarkTurquoise Box   Pink Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     GreenYellow Box   Olive Box   Brown Box   Gold Box   DarkGreen Box   Turquoise Box   SlateBlue Box   HotPink Box   DarkTurquoise Box

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

Goldenrod Box   SeaGreen Box   CadetBlue Box   DeepPink Box   Blue Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Yellow Box   SteelBlue Box   Khaki Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     Goldenrod Box   SeaGreen Box   CadetBlue Box   DeepPink Box   Blue Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Yellow Box   SteelBlue Box   Khaki Box   Goldenrod Box   SeaGreen Box   CadetBlue Box   DeepPink Box   Blue Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Yellow Box   SteelBlue Box   Khaki Box

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

Goldenrod Box   SeaGreen Box   CadetBlue Box   DeepPink Box   Blue Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Yellow Box   SteelBlue Box   Khaki Box    Goldenrod Box   SeaGreen Box   CadetBlue Box   DeepPink Box   Blue Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Yellow Box   SteelBlue Box   Khaki Box

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