Learning the times tables is a vital tool when multiplying numbers. By the end of Year 2 children are often fluent in their times tables up to 10. When they enter into KS2 in Year 3 they will also be taught some higher times tables in their Maths and Numeracy lessons. By the end of KS2 they will be familiar with all of the times tables from one to twelve. This quiz will test their knowledge of the 6 times table.

Learning the 6 times table involves multiplying numbers by 6. There are various ways of multiplying numbers by 6. Taking 7 x 6 as an example, we could multiply the 7 by 5 to get 35 and then add another 7 to reach 42. However that's a rather longwinded way. Learning the times tables off by heart makes things a lot easier!

See how well you know your 6 times table by playing this quiz.

1.

9 x 6 =

45

52

54

56

To multiply a number by 9 first times it by 10 and then take away the first number, so 6 x 10 = 60 and 60 - 6 = 54

2.

7 x 6 =

13

27

40

42

3.

8 x 6 =

48

52

60

66

48 is 12 less than 60. 60 is 10 x 6 and 12 is 2 x 6 so 48 is 8 x 6

4.

6 x 6 =

12

30

36

38

5.

12 x 6 =

60

66

72

76

6.

5 x 6 =

26

30

32

36

To multiply a number by 5 just times it by 10 and then half it. So 6 x 10 = 60 and 60 ÷ 2 = 30

7.

2 x 6 =

10

12

13

16

There are 12 months in the year

8.

4 x 6 =

20

22

24

30

9.

11 x 6 =

17

60

64

66

To multiply numbers lower than 10 by 11 just use the same number twice, so 3 x 11 = 33, 4 x 11 = 44 and 6 x 11 = 66

10.

3 x 6 =

12
