Introduction: The multiples of a number are something that you will always need. To remember all these multiples is not an easy job. You cannot just look at two big numbers and calculate the product in your mind. You will have to use smaller multiples of the digits to solve the problem. This is where the importance of the times table comes into play. It is what allows you to remember these smaller multiples easily. If you can’t remember, then you will have to solve them on paper as well. It will be time taking to solve the product of just two numbers in the question.
How to learn it quickly?
Make sure that you learn to form the table first. This will allow you to recall the answers anytime you want. Before you even solve the questions, form the multiplication chart in your sheet. You can use it as a reference. Learning this table may require a little practice. Although you can derive the answers by adding the same number repeatedly, you need to memorize. Otherwise, you have to recall from the beginning part one by one. In this way, you can remember the multiples of all the numbers from 1 to 20 in a few days.
Why is the multiplication table so important for kids?
Kids need to be in practice to keep their memory sharp. Otherwise, they will lose their retention slowly while they grow. By the time they reach high school, they will lack the basic requirements. The teacher will not understand the problem that the child will face. No one cares about your problems while performing calculations. They will just explain the process so that you know how to proceed. The remaining practice depends on how you approach your problems. These are some important advantages that you can gain with the help of these multiplication tables:
- Calculating dates: The best way to test your calculations is by checking out your calendar. There you will have to check the dates in the calendar one by one to see the result. It allows them to find out how long a process will take quickly. It will become natural for you to use multiplication in these areas. Before you even search the calendars, you can calculate the number of days you will need. This allows you to predict the final date of different situations in your life.
- Handle business: Multiplication is used maximum in areas where business owners have to work. Even a regular shopkeeper uses it to calculate the price of selling one quantity repeatedly. You don’t have to add the same value again and again. Just find out the frequency and multiply that with the original price. It allows people to find out how many parts they will need for repair work in business. This makes it easier to order items in bulk quantities for the company. Even at home, you can find out the electric bill by multiplying the unit with power consumed.
- Reduces stress: Multiplication tables are the best way to relieve stress in exams. You don’t have to worry about committing mistakes in big examinations. People get nervous and end up doing the same multiplication again and again. This is because they are not sure whether the answer they have written is correct or wrong. Multiplication tables are like an assurance for such nervous people. You get to see the solution of each product on your paper itself. It solves half the problem that you have to work on in exams.
