9 Times Table

5th September 2014.

There is a ‘fingers trick’ you can use to learn most of the nine times table:

Hold your ten fingers in front of you. If you want 4 x 9, then fold down your 4th finger from the left. You see three fingers to the left of this folded finger and six fingers to the right. So the answer to 4 x 9 is thirty six.

Try it again with 7 x 9. Fold down your 7th finger from the left. You see six fingers to the left of the folded finger and three fingers to the right. So the answer to 7 x 9 is sixty three.

The fingers trick covers up to 10 x 9. If you need 11 x 9 then 10 x 9 is 90; then add another 9 to make 99.
