1. Hold up your hands palms outwards
2. What’s 3 times 9? Lower your third finger (middle finger on the left) to represent the 3.
3. Fingers on the left of the ‘gap’ represent 10’s, fingers on the right represent 1’s.
4. Two fingers are on the left, seven fingers are on the right. = 27.
Try it. And then tell me why I never learnt this simple method for my 9 time’s table as a kid?
