# Multiplication Table of 4

Repeated addition by 4’s means the multiplication table of 4.

(i) When 3 candle-stands having four candles each.

By repeated addition we can show 4 + 4 + 4 = 12

Then, four 3 times or 3 fours

3 × 4 = 12

Therefore, there are 12 candles.

(ii) When there are 7 packets of cookies having four cookies in each.

By repeated addition we can show 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 28

Then, four 7 times or 7 fours

7 × 4 = 28

Therefore, there are 28 cookies.



We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 4.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 4, five times. Stop at 20.

5 fours are 20         5 × 4 = 20

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 4, eight times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 32

8 fours are 32         8 × 4 = 32

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 4, eleven times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 44

11 fours are 44         11 × 4 = 44

How to read and write the table of 4?

The above diagram will help us to read and write the 4 times table.

 Read 1 four is 4 2 fours are 8 3 fours are 12 4 fours are 16 5 fours are 20 6 fours are 24 7 fours are 28 8 fours are 32 9 fours are 36 10 fours are 40 11 fours are 44 12 fours are 48 Write 1 × 4 = 4 2 × 4 = 8 3 × 4 = 12 4 × 4 = 16 5 × 4 = 20 6 × 4 = 24 7 × 4 = 28 8 × 4 = 32 9 × 4 = 36 10 × 4 = 40 11 × 4 = 44 12 × 4 = 48

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 4’s.

Forward counting by 4’s: 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, 80, 84, 88, 92, 96, 100, ……

Backward counting by 4’s: ……, 100, 96, 92, 88, 84, 80, 76, 72, 68, 64, 60, 56, 52, 48, 44, 40, 36, 32, 28, 24, 20, 16, 12, 8, 4, 0.
