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

DeepSkyBlue Box   Orchid Box   DarkOrchid Box   Violet Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Navy Box   Coral Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   SandyBrown Box    DeepSkyBlue Box   Orchid Box   DarkOrchid Box   Violet Box   DarkGoldenrod Box   Navy Box   Coral Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   SandyBrown Box

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

Empty Box   Maroon Box   Thistle Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Cyan Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   OliveDrab Box   Brown Box   Khaki Box    Empty Box   Maroon Box   Thistle Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Cyan Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   OliveDrab Box   Brown Box   Khaki Box    Empty Box   Maroon Box   Thistle Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Cyan Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   OliveDrab Box   Brown Box   Khaki Box

In order to do basic multiplication, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

10×1 = 10
10×2 = 20
10×3 = 30
10×4 = 40
10×5 = 50
10×6 = 60
10×7 = 70
10×8 = 80
10×9 = 90
10×10 = 100
10×11 = 110
10×12 = 120

The following exercise will help you learn the above equations and what they mean. Please take your time: take whatever time you need to learn the material.
