Age Range: 7 - 11
By: Michele Papageorghiou

Which of the following tables is the 1,3,6 and 9 times tables?

• In this investigation, children should match each of the tables below to the 1, 3, 6 or 9 times tables.

• The values of each letter are unique to each table, i.e. C in table W does not have the same value as C in table X]

 TABLE W TABLE X H X A = A H X F = F H X G = G H X C = C H X H = H H X J = J H X D = D H X I = I H X B = B A = B = C = D = F = G = H = I = J = D X F = BG D X A = D D X D = JA D X C = IH D X I = AJ D X H = FC D X J = HI D X G = CF D X B = GB A = B = C = D = F = G = H = I = J = TABLE Y TABLE Z C X G = BG C X J = AF C X H = JD C X I = DG C X B = C C X C = AC C X E = DE C X A = BE C X D = GD A = B = C = D = E = F = G = H = I = J = H X J = GJ H X F = BI H X B = D H X I = BG H X H = F H X G = H H X D = GA H X C = GB H X A =BC A = B = C = D = F = G = H = I = J =

The information above can also be found on a worksheet below.

ANSWERS

 TABLE W ( 1 x table ) TABLE X ( 9 x table ) H X A = A H X F = F H X G = G H X C = C H X H = H H X J = J H X D = D H X I = I H X B = B H = 1 All other letters can be any other number from 2 to 9. D X F = BG D X A = D D X D = JA D X C = IH D X I = AJ D X H = FC D X J = HI D X G = CF D X B = GB A = 1 B = 5 C = 3 D = 9 F = 6 G = 4 H = 7 I = 2 J = 8 TABLE Y ( 6 x table ) TABLE Z ( 3 x table ) C X G = BG C X J = AF C X H = JD C X I = DG C X B = C C X C = AC C X E = DE C X A = BE C X D = GD A = 3 B = 1 C = 6 D = 4 E = 8 F = 0 G = 2 H = 9 I = 7 J = 5 H X J = GJ H X F = BI H X B = D H X I = BG H X H = F H X G = H H X D = GA H X C = GB H X A =BC A = 8 B = 2 C = 4 D = 6 F = 9 G = 1 H = 3 I = 7 J = 5

How are the values in table W defined? Apart from H, which =1, all the other letters could be any numbe between 2 and 9, surely?
