Help I am in 1st grade and there is this problem the teacher wants us to solve. Its 8 x 9

8 x 9 = 72

8+8+8+8+8+8+8+8+8

"8 x 9" 8 times 9 is like saying 8 plus 8 ... but 9 times. That process would take too long so to learn this you would either have to memorize your multiplications or do long multiplication. The answer is 72

78 is the aswer for 8x9

Your off by 6

8*9 = 8+8+8+8+8+8+8+8+8 = 72

Yea. 8 * 9 = 72
