## What is the pattern in the multiplication table?

Patterns Get children to notice the patterns in the multiplication tables: ➢ The numbers in the section to the right of the diagonal (white squares) are the same as in the section to the left of the diagonal. Or, in other words, the numbers in the darker shaded section are repeated in the lighter shaded section.

## What is the pattern in the 4 times table?

To help us add 4, we can remember the pattern of the last digits ending in 4, 8, 2, 6 and then 0. Because the 4 times table ends in only 4, 8, 2, 6 and 0, all numbers in the 4 times table are even. No numbers in the 4 times table are odd. This pattern of 4, 8, 2, 6, 0 repeats as seen in the 4 times table chart below.

**What are Table patterns?**

Pattern tables allow you to create complicated or irregular patterns of features or groups by letting you specify unique dimensions for each instance in the pattern through an editable table. Multiple tables can be established for a pattern, so you can change the pattern by switching the table that drives it.

### How do you find the pattern rule for a table?

To determine the rule for a table, simply look at one pair of input/output numbers and figure out what number has been added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided by it. Then, make sure that pattern matches the rest of the numbers. Once you know the rule for a table, you can finish filling in the rest of it.

### How do you describe a pattern in a sequence?

To describe terms in a number pattern we use the following notation: The first term of a sequence is T1. The fourth term of a sequence is T4. If we find the relationship between the position of a term and its value, we can find a general formula which matches the pattern and find any term in the sequence.

**What is the pattern of multiplying two numbers?**

All multiples of 2 have a pattern of 2, 4, 6, 8, or 0 in the ones place. When multiplying ANY number by 2, the result is EVEN.

#### What is the pattern of multiples of 3?

Multiples of 3 have a pattern of 3, 6, 9, 2, 5, 8, 1, 4, 7, 0 in the ones place. Every other multiple of 3 is even. All EVEN multiples of 3 are also a multiple of 6 (the even multiples of 3 are the 6 “count by’s”). Multiples of 4 have a pattern of 4, 8, 2, 6, 0 in the ones place.

#### What is the pattern of multiples of 8?

Multiples of 8 have a pattern of 8, 6, 4, 2, 0 in the ones place. All multiples of 8 are even. All multiples of 8 are multiples of 2 and 4. To multiply a number by 8, you can double-double-double the number. (Example: 4 x 8 —> 4 doubled = 8, 8 doubled = 16, 16 doubled = 32. 4 x 8 = 32)

**What are the patterns for multiples of six?**

On the third day the students begin looking for similar ones and tens digit patterns. Using the hundred chart, the students mark the multiples of six. The ones digits for multiples of six are 0, 6, 2, 8, 4, 0.
