## Our Tricks for learning your multiplication Tables from 1 up to 12

### No need to learn the whole multiplication Chart

There are many duplicates in a chart. Indeed, in a multiplication operation, you can invert the numbers while obtaining the same result.

For example: 7 x 6 = 6 x 7 = 42

So if you know the result of 6 x 7, you also know the result of 7 x 6!

There is therefore no need to learn duplicates. It is also not necessary to learn by heart the 1 Time and 10 Times tables because they are very easy!
Once all duplicates have been removed (as well as the 1 Time and 10 Times tables) there are only 55 multiplications left to learn (instead of 144)!

### Bring colour into your Chart!

To make the learning of the multiplication tables easier for you, the ideal is to colour the chart by assigning a different colour to each table. To save time, choose a Multiplication Chart Color-coded from our Printable multiplication Charts.

To create a personalized chart with your favorite colors, print our Black and White Multiplication Chart and let's get out your felt pens! Follow our coloring tips below:

For example: If you assign the green to the number 3, you will have to color in green the following cells: 3x3, 3x4, 3x5, 3x6, 3x7, 3x8, 3x9 (horizontal line) as well as 4x3, 5x3, 6x3, 7x3, 8x3, 9x3 (vertical line). 3x2, belongs to the 2 times table, so color it using the color of the 2 times table. Indeed, the result of 3x2 is equal to the result of 2x3, it is therefore useless to learn both, when you know the first, you find the second.

Note: There is no need to color the cells corresponding to the 1 and 10 times table because the results are very easy and you will not need to learn them by heart!

### Tricks for the tables from 1 to 10

#### 1 Time table

When a number is multiplied by 1, the result is always the number (Example: 8 x 1 = 8).

#### 2 Times & 4 Times table

The common point of these 2 tables is that the result always ends with 0,2,4,6 or 8.

#### 5 Times table

The result of this table always ends with 0 or 5.

#### 6 Times table

It's the table that rhymes! Indeed, in this table, there are 3 multiplications which rhyme and which will be thus much easier to memorize than the others. They are 6x4=24, 6x6=36, 6x8=48. The ideal is to repeat aloud several times these 3 multiplications and you will see that, thanks to the rhymes, you will learn them very fast!

#### 9 Times table

When you multiply a number by 9, the result always starts with the number from which you have subtracted 1 (number - 1). Example: 9 x 8 = 72 (because 8-1 =7). Moreover, the sum of the 2 digits of the result is always equal to 9. Example: 9 x 8 = 72 (7+2=9).

#### 10 Times table

When a number is multiplied by 10, the result is the number followed by a zero (Example: 8 x 10 = 80).

### Tricks for the 11 Times table

#### From 11x1 up to 11x9

The number by which we multiply 11 is doubled:

- 11 x 1 = 11
- 11 x 2 = 22
- 11 x 3 = 33
- 11 x 4 = 44
- 11 x 5 = 55
- 11 x 6 = 66
- 11 x 7 = 77
- 11 x 8 = 88
- 11 x 9 = 99

#### 11x10

The rule of the 10 Times table applies: A number multiplied by 10 is always equal to the number followed by a zero:

11 x 10 = 110

#### From 11x11 up to 11x99

There is a simple rule that allows you to find the result without calculating it. When you multiply a 2-digit number by 11: you space the 2 digits of the number and in the middle you insert the sum of these 2 digits. There are 2 cases:

When the sum of the 2 digits is less than 10:

- 11 x 11 = 121
- 11 x 12 = 132
- 11 x 13 = 143
- 11 x 14 = 154
- 11 x 15 = 165
- ...
- 11 x 25 = 275

When the sum of the 2 digits is greater than 10: idem but you have to add 1 to the first digit!

- 11 x 19 = 209
- 11 x 47 = 517
- 11 x 66 = 726
- ...
- 11 x 99 = 1089

### Tricks for the 12 Times table

There is no real trick for learning the 12 Times table, but this table is not really difficult because, as it is a multiple of 12, it is fairly easy to calculate the results in your head.

For example:

- 12 x 2 = 10 x 2 + 2 x 2 = 20 + 4 = 24
- 12 x 3 = 10 x 3 + 2 x 3 = 30 + 6 = 36
- 12 x 4 = 10 x 4 + 2 x 4 = 40 + 8 = 48
- 12 x 5 = 10 x 5 + 2 x 5 = 50 + 10 = 60
- 12 x 6 = 10 x 6 + 2 x 6 = 60 + 12 = 72
- 12 x 7 = 10 x 7 + 2 x 7 = 70 + 14 = 84
- 12 x 8 = 10 x 8 + 2 x 8 = 80 + 16 = 96
- 12 x 9 = 10 x 9 + 2 x 9 = 90 + 18 = 108
- 12 x 10 = 120 (10 Times table)
- 12 x 11 = 132 (11 Times table)
- 12 x 12 = 10 x 12 + 2 x 12 = 120 + 24 = 144
