The multiplication table that includes multiples of 12 is known as the “12 times multiplication table”. Whenever twelve is multiplied by a whole number, the table of 12 shows the addition of 12 to itself repeatedly.

Children will find it easier to study the multiplication table for 12 because they have most likely mastered the multiplication tables for 1 through 10. Turning the times tables is all needed to find multiples of 12. When solving problems that require multiples of 12, knowing the 12 times table is helpful.

**When are the twelve times tables taught to students?**

Multiplication tables are taught to learners aged 6 to 8 years old or 2^{nd} or 3^{rd} grades (USA).

It may be difficult for kids to master the 12 times table because it contains several large numbers. However, learning the multiplication table for 12 will be simpler for children because they have most multiplication tables for 1 through 10. Finding the multiples of 12 requires turning the times tables.

Knowing the 12 times multiplication table is helpful. Children will be better able to answer multiplication problems independently if they know the 12 times multiplication table.

**Tips to Master the 12 Times Multiplication Table**

Here are a few tips to make learning the 12 times multiplication table simple and quick.

( a ) *When multiplying by 12, the number 12 is continuously added.*

Say, for instance, that the number 12 is added three times when we say 12 times 3 (12 × 3).

Therefore, for additional examples using the twelve times table,

12 × 1 = **12**

12 × 2 = 12 + 12 = **24**

12 × 3 = 12 + 12 + 12 = **36**

12 × 4 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = **48**

12 × 5 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = **60**

12 × 6 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = **72**

12 × 7 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 +12 = **84**

12 × 8 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 +12 + 12 = **96**

12 × 9 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 +12 + 12 + 12 = **108**

12 × 10 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 +12 + 12 + 12 + 12= **120**

12 × 11 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 +12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = **132**

12 × 12 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 +12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = **144**

( b )** The products in the 12 times table end in the digits 2, 4, 6, 8, and 0.**

The table below shows that the final digits have the same pattern of 2, 4, 6, 8, and 0.

12 × 1 = 12 | 12 × 6 = 72 | 12 × 11 = 132 | 12 × 16 = 192 | 12 × 21 = 252 |

12 × 2 = 24 | 12 × 7 = 84 | 12 × 12 = 144 | 12 × 17 = 204 | 12 × 22 = 264 |

12 × 3 = 36 | 12 × 8 = 96 | 12 × 13 = 156 | 12 × 18 = 216 | 12 × 23 = 276 |

12 × 4 = 48 | 12 × 9 = 108 | 12 × 14 = 168 | 12 × 19 = 228 | 12 × 24 = 288 |

12 × 5 = 60 | 12 × 10 = 120 | 12 × 15 = 180 | 12 × 20 = 240 | 12 × 25 = 300 |

( a ) *Learn the 12 times table in reverse order.*

Before mastering the 12 times multiplication table, a student is expected to have mastered the lower multiplication tables. Once you have the lower ones, use the reverse tables. This is so that the order of the numbers does not affect the outcome of multiplication, which is commutative.

Let us say, for example, 4 multiplied by 12 is 48, then 12 multiplied by 4 is also 48. Hence, we have,

1 × 12 = 12 | 12 × 1 = 12 |

2 × 12 = 24 | 12 × 2 = 24 |

3 × 12 = 36 | 12 × 3 = 36 |

4 × 12 = 48 | 12 × 4 = 48 |

5 × 12 = 60 | 12 × 5 = 60 |

6 × 12 = 72 | 12 × 6 = 72 |

7 × 12 = 84 | 12 × 7 = 84 |

8 × 12 = 96 | 12 × 8 = 96 |

9 × 12 = 108 | 12 × 9 = 108 |

10 × 12 = 120 | 12 × 10 = 120 |

11 × 12 = 132 | 12 × 11 = 132 |

12 × 12 = 144 | 12 × 12 = 144 |
