# How do you express the multiplication table(times table) in your native language?Welcome! Different languages

We may discuss the differences between different languages.I think it a interesting topic.

1×1=1
1×2=2 2×2=4
1×3=3 2×3=6 3×3=9
1×4=4 2×4=8 3×4=12 4×4=16
1×5=5 2×5=10 3×5=15 4×5=20 5×5=25
1×6=6 2×6=12 3×6=18 4×6=24 5×6=30 6×6=36
1×7=7 2×7=14 3×7=21 4×7=28 5×7=35 6×7=42 7×7=49
1×8=8 2×8=16 3×8=24 4×8=32 5×8=40 6×8=48 7×8=56 8×8=64
1×9=9 2×9=18 3×9=27 4×9=36 5×9=45 6×9=54 7×9=63 8×9=72 9×9=81

My mother language is Chinese.We often say it as follows:

We say it in a simple way.The same figures don't appear twice.

eg."Two times three equals six."only appears once,not appears "Three times two equals six"

and still this example,the standard rule is "two times three equals six."but we say it unformally.We short it for "二三得六"("two three is six")

And sorry for my poor English,hope everyone can understand what I am saying.You can write it in your mother language and I will be happy to see different people from different countries say it with different languages.

Come on!!!

In my language, Thai, we would say only number without the word "multiply or time". We kind of shorten it.

For example, 2x2=4 would be "two two four".
So we usually go like this:
two two four, two three six, two four eight, two five ten, . . ., two twelve twenty-four.

Very simple and easy for me to remember.

But, Ant D. Thongwarn, what do you do for division, or addition, or subtraction then? Are there symbols or words for that?

@Ant D. Thongwarn we just like your Thai,but we add "is". two three is six,two four is eight...

and you must finish reading it more quickly than me,I need 1minute.

we also say 2x2 is (would be) 4. and so on ;)

speaking of russian, well, the answer is in the nature of our language. You just change the ending (add or change letters) of a numeral to show what's multiplied by what and there's no confusion at all

По-русски можно сказать (2Х2=4): 1. два на два четыре 2. дважды два четыре

Вариант 2 более школьный что ли :) при этом первый множитель называют:

1 - единожды

2 - дважды

3 - трижды

4 - четырежды

5 - пятью

6 - шестью

7 - семью

8 - восемью

9 - девятью

Удачи ;)

спасибо! Павел
