In mathematics, the multiplication table (also called the times table), gives the multiples of numbers. The table of multiplication can be obtained by multiplying a number with a set of whole numbers. As we know, multiplication is one of the basic mathematical operations. Multiplication is the most commonly used approach to get the multiplication tables. For example, multiplication table of 3 is given by:
- 3 × 1 = 3
- 3 × 2 = 6
- 3 × 3 = 9
- 3 × 4 = 12
- 3 × 5 = 15
and so on.
We can also write the multiplication tables using different techniques such as multiplication, repeated addition, skip counting, etc.
Multiplication Tables are provided here from 1 to 30 for the students in PDFs, which can be downloaded easily. One of the fundamental steps involved with grasping basic maths is learning the multiplication tables by heart. Of course, it is not possible for students to learn all the tables from 1 to 100, but they can easily memorize the multiplication tables from 1 to 20. It not only helps with performing basic arithmetic operations quickly but also understands the concepts in an effective way.

Importance of Multiplication Table
Although a very basic calculator can be used to carry out these multiplications, their usage is not encouraged for two reasons. First of all, calculators are generally not allowed at the primary education level. Secondly, their usage inhibits a student from developing mental maths skills which can be a great help in daily lives as adults.
To facilitate the memorization of Maths multiplication tables, it is important to visualize the tables and recite them until the student can recall any particular multiple such as ‘seven of eights are’. Practising the tables by writing them repeatedly is another way to memorise them. In fact, by simultaneously reciting the tables, the student can accomplish all the three ways of learning the tables – visualising, reciting, and writing.
As the students move from primary education to secondary education, performing quick and accurate arithmetic operations become extremely important. Whether it is the calculation of the least common multiple or calculating the final velocity of an object moving at a certain acceleration, recalling multiples of up to 20 is essential.
Also, beyond the table of 20, if you have to multiply large numbers, you have to rely on fundamental multiplication. For example, to multiply 36 and 18, the first step is to multiply 6 and 8. The student should be able to recall that six eights are forty-eight to move beyond the first step. This is where Math multiplication tables can come in handy.

Multiplication table can be easily remembered using the traditional rote learning method, which is based on the memorization of numbers in the column table. The below table shows the illustration of the multiplication table up to 12 × 12 size, which is regularly used in schools.
Tips to Learn Multiplication Table
- While multiplying any two numbers, the order does not matter (i.e., which number is first or second). The answer should be always the same if we multiply the first number with the second number or the second number with the first number. For example, 4 × 2 = 8 or 2 × 4 = 8
- Sometimes, it is difficult to memorize the whole table at once. So learn the multiplication tables in chunks. Also, we can learn the multiplication table easily using some patterns. The patterns will help to remember the product of two numbers.
- For example, 2 times table can be remembered by just doubling the number. It means that add the number with the same number. For instance, we have to multiply 2 × 4. To find the product, add 4 with 4, we get 8.
- Likewise, the pattern for 5 times table is 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, … and so on. It should either end with 0 or 5.
- For a 10 times table, just put zero at the end of the given number. For example, 7 × 10 = 70, 11 × 10 = 110.

Frequently Asked Questions on Multiplication Tables
What is meant by the multiplication table?
In Maths, multiplication tables or times tables are defined as the list of multiples of the number. In other words, it is defined as a mathematical table which defines the multiplication operation of the two given numbers
Why should we learn multiplication tables?
Learning a multiplication table will help us to do the calculation faster while solving the mathematical problems and increases mental arithmetic skills instead of using the fingers to work out the problems.
How to remember multiplication tables?
Multiplication tables can be easily remembered using some patterns or with the help of traditional rote learning methods.
How to remember the 10 times table?
10 times table is considered as the easiest table, and it can be remembered by appending zero at the end of the given number. For example, 5 times 10 is equal to 50.
How to remember the 9 times table?
While writing the 9 times table, one’s place goes down like 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, and the same time ten’s place goes up like 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Therefore, the pattern for the 9 times table is 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90.
