# Multiplication Table of 6

Repeated addition by 6’s means the multiplication table of 6.

(i) When 6 bunches each having six bananas.

By repeated addition we can show 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 36

Then, six 6 times or 6 sixes

6 × 6 = 36

Therefore, there are 36 bananas.

(ii) When 3 trees each having 6 mangoes.

By repeated addition we can show 6 + 6 + 6 = 18

Then, six 3 times or 3 sixes

3 × 6 = 18

Therefore, there are 18 mangoes.

We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 6.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 6, four times. Stop at 24.

4 sixes are 24         4 × 6 = 24

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 6, seven times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 42

7 sixes are 42         7 × 6 = 42

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 6, nine times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 54

9 sixes are 54         9 × 6 = 54

How to read and write the table of 6?

The above chart will help us to read and write the 6 times table.

 Read 1 six is 6 2 sixes are 12 3 sixes are 18 4 sixes are 24 5 sixes are 30 6 sixes are 36 7 sixes are 42 8 sixes are 48 9 sixes are 54 10 sixes are 60 11 sixes are 66 12 sixes are 72 Write 1 × 6 = 6 2 × 6 = 12 3 × 6 = 18 4 × 6 = 24 5 × 6 = 30 6 × 6 = 36 7 × 6 = 42 8 × 6 = 48 9 × 6 = 54 10 × 6 = 60 11 × 6 = 66 12 × 6 = 72

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 6’s.

Forward counting by 6’s: 0, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72, 78, 84, 90, 96, 102, 108, 114, 120, 126, 132, 138, 144, 150, ……

Backward counting by 6’s: ……, 150, 144, 138, 132, 126, 120, 114, 108, 102, 96, 90, 84, 78, 72, 66, 60, 54, 48, 42, 36, 30, 24, 18, 12, 6, 0.
