# Multiplication Table of 16

Repeated addition by 16’s means the multiplication table of 16.

(i) When 6 racks of 16 vegetables each.

By repeated addition we can show 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 = 96

Then, sixteen 6 times or 6 sixteen‘s

6 × 16 = 96

Therefore, there are 96 vegetables.

(ii) When 10 packs each having 16 pens.

By repeated addition we can show 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 = 160

Then, sixteen 10 times or 10 sixteen‘s

10 × 16 = 160

Therefore, there are 160.

We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 16.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 16, five times. Stop at 80.

5 sixteen‘s are 80         5 × 16 = 80

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 16, eight times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 128

8 sixteen‘s are 128         8 × 16 = 128

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 16, eleven times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 176

11 sixteen‘s are 60         11 × 16 = 176

How to read and write the table of 16?

The above chart will help us to read and write the 16 times table.

 Read 1 sixteen is 16 2 sixteen’s are 32 3 sixteen’s are 48 4 sixteen’s are 64 5 sixteen’s are 80 6 sixteen’s are 96 7 sixteen’s are 112 8 sixteen’s are 128 9 sixteen’s are 144 10 sixteen’s are 160 11 sixteen’s are 176 12 sixteen’s are 192 Write 1 × 16 = 16 2 × 16 = 32 3 × 16 = 48 4 × 16 = 64 5 × 16 = 80 6 × 16 = 96 7 × 16 = 112 8 × 16 = 128 9 × 16 = 144 10 × 16 = 160 11 × 16 = 176 12 × 16 = 192

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 16’s.

Forward counting by 16’s: 0, 16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144, 160, 176, 192, 208, 224, 240, 256, 272, 288, 304, 320, 336, 352, 368, 384, 400, ……

Backward counting by 16’s: ……, 400, 384, 368, 352, 336, 320, 304, 288, 272, 256, 240, 224, 208, 192, 176, 160, 144, 128, 112, 96, 80, 64, 48, 32, 16, 0
