This method is a fun, easy way to learn your 9 times table facts.

Each finger gets a number associated with it (see below).
When you multiply 9 by a number, that numbered finger goes down.
The answer (or product) is the two digit number that is created by
the fingers that are still up. The first digit is to the left of the finger
that’s down, and the second digit is to the right of the finger that’s down.

For example: 9 x 3
The finger with the 3 on it does down
and the remaining fingers that are still
up make a 2 (on one side of the finger
that’s down) and a 7 (on the other side).
Put those digits together and you get 27.
9 x 3 = 27
