# Multiplication Table of 13

Repeated addition by 13’s means the multiplication table of 13.

(i) When 7 heaps of 13 footballs each.

By repeated addition we can show 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 = 91

Then, thirteen 7 times or 7 thirteen’s

7 × 13 = 91

Therefore, there are 91 footballs.

(ii) When 12 rows of 13 soldiers each.

By repeated addition we can show 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 + 13 = 156

Then, thirteen 12 times or 12 thirteen’s

12 × 13 = 156

Therefore, there are 156 soldiers.



We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 13.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 13, four times. Stop at 52.

4 thirteen’s are 52         4 × 13 = 52

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 13, five times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 65

5 thirteen’s are 65         5 × 13 = 65

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 13, nine times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 117

9 thirteen’s are 117         9 × 13 = 117
