In mathematics, a multiplication table is a mathematical table used to define a multiplication operation for an algebraic system. The decimal multiplication table was traditionally taught as an essential part of elementary arithmetic around the world, as it lays the foundation for arithmetic operations with our base-ten numbers. It is necessary to memorize the table up to 9 × 9, and often helpful up to 12 × 12 to be proficient in traditional mathematics. A multiplication table ('times table', as used to teach students multiplication) is a grid where rows and columns are headed by the numbers to multiply, and the entry in each cell is the product of the column and row headings.
