Units

1 x 9 = 0

2 x 9 = 1

3 x 9 = 2

4 x 9 = 3

5 x 9 = 4

6 x 9 = 5

7 x 9 = 6

8 x 9 = 7

9 x 9 = 8

10 x 9 = 9

###### Did you know...

######

0 + 9 = 9

1 + 8 = 9

2 + 7 = 9

etc.

When the answers are larger, just keep adding the digits

eg

9 x 11 = 99

9 + 9 = 18 (keep adding)

1 + 8 = 9

This works however large the number

eg

9 x 532 = 4,788

4 + 7 + 8 + 8 = 27 (keep adding)

2 + 7 = 9

If you add up the digits in the answers they will always add up to NINE

#### Use your 10x...

Finding it difficult to remember 9 times a number?

Work out 10 times that number, then subtract that number

What is 6 x 9? ie 9 lots of 6

Well, 10 lots of 6 = 60

so 6 x 9 is 60 less one lot of 6

60 - 6 = 54

What is 3 x 9? ie 9 lots of 3

Well, 10 x 3 = 30, but that is one lot of 3 too many.

9 x 3 = 30 less 3 = 27
