# Multiplication Table of 1

Repeated addition by 1’s means the multiplication table of 1.

(i) When 3 candle-stand having 1 candle each.

By repeated addition we can show 1 + 1 + 1 = 3

Then, one 3 times or 3 one’s

3 × 1 = 3

Therefore, there are 3 candles.

(ii) When 8 groups having 1 lollipop each.

By repeated addition we can show 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 8

Then, one 8 times or 8 one’s

8 × 1 = 8

Therefore, there are 8 lollipops.

We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 1.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 1, five times. Stop at 5.

5 one’s are 5         5 × 1 = 5

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 1, nine times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 9

9 one’s are 9         9 × 1 = 9

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 1, eleven times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 11

11 one’s are 253         11 × 1 = 11

How to read and write the table of 1?

The above chart will help us to read and write the 1 times table.

 Read 1 one is 1 2 one’s are 2 3 one’s are 3 4 one’s are 4 5 one’s are 5 6 one’s are 6 7 one’s are 7 8 one’s are 8 9 one’s are 9 10 one’s are 10 11 one’s are 11 12 one’s are 12 Write 1 × 1 = 1 2 × 1 = 2 3 × 1 = 3 4 × 1 = 4 5 × 1 = 5 6 × 1 = 6 7 × 1 = 7 8 × 1 = 8 9 × 1 = 9 10 × 1 = 10 11 × 1 = 11 12 × 1 = 12

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 1’s.

Forward counting by 1’s: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, ……

Backward counting by 1’s: ……, 25, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0
