# Multiplication Table of 12

Repeated addition by 12’s means the multiplication table of 12.

(i) When 4 heaps of 12 oranges each.

By repeated addition we can show 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = 48

Then, twelve 4 times or 4 twelve’s

4 × 12 = 48

Therefore, there are 48 oranges.

(ii) When 9 boxes each having 12 color-pens.

By repeated addition we can show 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = 108

Then, twelve 9 times or 9 twelve’s

9 × 12 = 108

Therefore, there are 108 color-pens.

We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 12.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 12, two times. Stop at 24.

2 twelve’s are 24         2 × 12 = 24

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 12, six times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 72

6 twelve’s are 72         6 × 12 = 72

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 12, eight times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 96

8 twelve’s are 96         8 × 12 = 96

How to read and write the table of 12?

The above chart will help us to read and write the 12 times table.

 Read 1 twelve is 12 2 twelve’s are 24 3 twelve’s are 36 4 twelve’s are 48 5 twelve’s are 60 6 twelve’s are 72 7 twelve’s are 84 8 twelve’s are 96 9 twelve’s are 108 10 twelve’s are 120 11 twelve’s are 132 12 twelve’s are 144 Write 1 × 12 = 12 2 × 12 = 24 3 × 12 = 36 4 × 12 = 48 5 × 12 = 60 6 × 12 = 72 7 × 12 = 84 8 × 12 = 96 9 × 12 = 108 10 × 12 = 120 11 × 12 = 132 12 × 12 = 144

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 12’s.

Forward counting by 12’s: 0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, 144, 156, 168, 180, 192, 204, 216, 228, 240, 252, 264, 276, 288, 300, ……

Backward counting by 12’s: ……, 300, 288, 276, 264, 252, 240, 228, 216, 204, 192, 180, 168, 156, 144, 132, 120, 108, 96, 84, 72, 60, 48, 36, 24, 12, 0
