This is the next in our series of calculation activities to encourage knowledge of tables. It concentrates on multiples of 8 and like the other games we have published the aim is to cover a row of four squares. Some of the answers are quite tricky to find, such as finding what number multiplied by 8 makes 112?

Remember that the calculator can probably be made into a ‘multiply by 8’ machine by pressing: 8 x x = 0, then all you need to type in is the number and = to find out what 8 times the number is.
