If you want to do well in maths it's a good idea to learn the times tables off by heart. Most people learn the times tables up to 12 but, for KS3 Maths, we thought you'd like a bit more of a challenge. That's why we're going to test your times table knowledge all the way up to the 20 times table. In this quiz we look at the 14 times table.

168, 238 and 84 are all divisible by 14 and therefore you'll find them in the 14 times table. The higher you go with the times tables the bigger the numbers get, but the rules are just the same. British philosopher, Bertrand Russell, said, "I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because like Spinoza's God, it won't love us in return."

Try your hand at the 14 times table and find out whether you love maths just as much as Bertrand Russell did!
