# 11 Times Table

If you are an 11-plus student, then you will need no introduction to the times tables. If you aren't hugely confident with your times tables, then you might want to brush up your knowledge by playing this quiz which looks at the eleven times table.

Learning the eleven times table is all about multiplying numbers by 11. For smaller numbers it's easy to do this - just write the number twice: 3 x 11 = 33, 7 x 11 = 77. When it comes to double digit numbers though, things get a little harder. Keep in mind the much easier 10 times table and that should help. First multiply the number by 10 and then add the original number.

You may think that you've cracked the times tables by now - but be on your guard! Overconfidence can cause carelessness and carelessness leads to mistakes. Take your time and choose each answer wisely!

Keep coming back to these times table quizzes even when you've mastered them. Practise makes perfect and it will help to make the times tables second nature.
