Multiplication is a key part of maths that we use every day. People use multiplication in their daily lives without even thinking about it! The table of 2 is the first important multiplication table that students must learn and remember to progress in multiplication. Even though the table of 1 comes first, the answer to 1 multiplied by any number is the same number. This guide will help you understand and remember the table of 2.

The trick to learning and memorising the table of 2 is very simple. When you multiply any number by 2, you're just doubling that number. For example, 2 times 4 is the same as doubling 4, which gives you 8. Learning this table will not only help you with maths problems but also in everyday situations where you need to double a number.

For an introduction to tables, read our guide to tables from 1 to 20.

Multiplication tables are lists of numbers. They show you the results when you multiply numbers together. Think of them as a shortcut for doing lots of multiplication problems.

A multiplication table is like a big chart. It helps you find the answers to multiplication problems quickly. The most common one is the table that goes up to 10 (though the table below goes up to 100). For example, the multiplication table of 2 looks like this:

- 2 times 1 is 2
- 2 times 2 is 4
- 2 times 3 is 6
- ... and so on, up to 2 times 10 is 20.

This table tells you that if you multiply 2 by any number between 1 and 10, you can quickly find the answer. So, if you're buying 2 candies from 7 different stores, instead of adding 2 seven times, you can look at the table and see that 2 times 7 is 14. You'll have 14 candies.

Multiplication tables are very useful. They help you solve maths problems faster. When you know them well, you can do harder maths more easily. This is why many people try to remember all the tables up to 10 or even higher. It's like having a maths tool in your brain, ready to use whenever you need it.

When multiplying any two numbers, the number being multiplied (i.e. 2 in this case) is called the multiplicand, whereas the number of times it is to be multiplied is the multiplier. The answer to multiplying these two numbers is known as the product. For example, in 2 times 4, 2 is the multiplicand, 4 is the multiplier, and the product is 8.
