A multiplication table defines the mutiplication for any two numbers. For children it is necessary to understand and memorise the table from 1*1=1 till 9*9=81, though the real mutilication table could be any big table .

The same table can be used for multiplication of any numbers in decimal system includibg decimal fractional numbers also.

Here is a typical multiplication table from which you can find out the product any two numbers fro 1 to 9

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09

02 04 06 08 10 12 14 16 18

03 06 09 12 15 18 21 24 27

04 08 12 16 20 24 28 32 36

05 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45

06 12 18 24 30 36 42 48 54

07 14 21 28 35 42 49 56 63

08 16 24 32 40 48 56 64 72

09 18 27 36 45 54 63 72 81

From the above we can see, for example, that 6*5=30 i.e 6th row's first number multiplied by 5 (5th column's first number) is 30 which is at 6th row's 5th number. Or 6th column's first element multiplied by 5th rows first element is at 6th comn's 5 number which is 30.

The table could be used to multiply a decimal number fractions also: example 0.7*0.008= 0.0056 is as good as multiplying 7*8 and choosing the decimal point as sum of decimals in multiplier and multiplied numbers.
