# 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

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.
