The multiples of two make up the 2 times table, sometimes referred to as the multiplication table for the number 2. Any integer multiplied by two yields a product that is a multiple of two. Here is the table of two times up to ten:

2 x 1 = 2

2 x 2 = 4

2 x 3 = 6

2 x 4 = 8

2 x 5 = 10

2 x 6 = 12

2 x 7 = 14

2 x 8 = 16

2 x 9 = 18

2 x 10 = 20

2 x 11 = 22

2 x 12 = 24

Start at 0 on the number line.

Skip count by 2s, adding 2 each time.

0, 2 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 10 , 12 , 14 , 16 , 18 , 20 ,…

Each underlined number represents a multiple of 2. So, 2 times 1 is 2, 2 times 2 is 4, 2 times 3 is 6, and so on. You can see the pattern of adding 2 to the previous number, and this pattern continues indefinitely.

Repeated Addition

Students must comprehend that the 2 times table is just the repetitive addition of the number 2 in order to memorise it. Since multiplication is simply repeated addition, as we all know, this may be explained by the following idea. It is known that the formula for 2 × 6 is 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12. Consequently, 2 x 6 = 12.
