# Multiplication Squares!

In the 2×2 multiplication square below, the boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column **give the result of multiplying the two numbers in that row or column e.g. 7 x 5 = 35 or 4 x 5 = 20.**

The 3×3 multiplication square below works in the same way. The boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the three numbers in that row or column.

**Can you find the missing numbers? **

**The numbers 1−9 may be used once and once only.**

**Challenge** – Is there more than one possible set of answers for each row or column?

Hi. I am a cat 🐈

You are NOT a cat

This is hard….

I don’t get how to work it out?

Miss Ashby is there to help, Annabel.

I understand. And miss Ashby has just helped you.

Thank you, Erin. Annabel ~ you need to apply yourself to your work now. If after a while, you still need help, ask the adults in you room again. That is the best place for you to get help.

Hello fellow peeps!

This doesn’t make sense. Here is why:

On the 144 column, 7 x 6 = 42 x 1= 42 (it doesn’t go to 144)

The other way round – doesn’t work

Trying a different way: 1 x 6 = 6 x 7 = 42 (doesn’t go)

Therefor that column does not make any sense.

My case is closed…

Annabel

You need to try something else!
