What is 8 times 6?

Question:

What is 8 times 6?

Basic Multiplication Facts

Have you learned your 'times tables?' Multiplication facts are handy to know. For instance, if you want to figure out how much money you need to buy 6 candies if each one cost 8 cents, you could multiply 8 times 6 to find out.

Answer and Explanation:

What is the problem '8 times 6' really asking you to do? It's telling you that you have a group of something, and you have to figure out how many things are in that group.

Let's say you have a set of 8 sixes. How much do all those sixes add up to? Well, look at 8 times 6 this way: 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6.

It's 6 added 8 times. If you added all those sixes together, you'd get 48. This is the same as 8 x 6.

8 times 6 equals 48.
