## Times Tables

A times table is a list of multiples of a number. For instance, if we want to work out the times table for 2, we start with 2 and then add 2 in each step. The answer obtained in every step is a multiple of 2 and is known as multiplication fact.

Some of the times tables are illustrated below:

Times Table of 2:

 Times Table (2) Meaning Illustration 2×1=2 1 lot of 2 2×2=4 2 lots of 2 2×3=6 3 lots of 2 2×4=8 4 lots of 2 We can find out the times table of other numbers also.

Example 1: Find out the times table of 5.

To work out times table of 5, we add  5 each time. Example 2: Find out what can we write in place of question mark?

7×3=?

7 times 3 mean 3 lots of 7 or 7 lots of 3.  Or we can work out in another way, Example 3: Find out the missing number. It means some lots of 8 give us 40. So we can use division fact here.
