# Use known facts from the 2, 5 and 6 times tables to solve problems involving the 7 times table

I can use known facts from the 2, 5 and 6 times tables to solve problems involving the 7 times table.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- If 7 is equal to 5 plus 2 then 7 groups of 6 is equal to 5 groups of 6 plus 2 groups of 6
- 7 times a number and 6 times the same number are adjacent multiples
- Arrays can represent the connections between the 2, 5, 6 and 7 times tables

### Common misconception

Pupils may not realise they can use simpler multiplication facts to build up to the 7 times table or may not know their times tables facts.

You can provide multiplication charts. Continue to encourage pupils to break down problems involving 7 into smaller, known facts (e.g., 7 × 6 = 5 × 6 + 2 × 6).
