# Learning tables: 8 times table

Learning the 8 times table with mathsblog.co.uk

The 8 times table is another of the harder tables which many children never get a secure recall of. It is, of course, double the four times table and all the answers are even.

Remembering by doubling the four times table is OK but it never results in the really fast recall that comes with memorising the table.

The whole idea of tables is that they are learnt, off by heart. To do this it is essential to say them out loud:

One times eight is eight

two times eight is sixteen

three times eight is twenty four

four times eight is thirty two

five times eight is forty

six times eight is forty eight

seven times eight is fifty six

eight times eight is sixty four

nine times eight is seventy two

ten times eight is eighty

Later these can be shortened to say, for example, “ seven eights are fifty six”.

Below are two worksheets for the eight times table. A good way to do these is to time them to see how long your child takes.
