# WATCH: Genius maths hacks: The 11 times table

The easiest way to work out 4561 x 11...

When your little ones start primary school, the first thing they're taught is how to count with shapes and objects. They put them together and take them away, and you get different combinations. By the end of Grade 1, kids already know how to do basic addition and subtraction.

In Grade 2, the numbers increase and learners are introduced to new mathematical concepts. And before long, they’re marching up and down at home reciting their times tables out loud, memorising the 3- and 4-times tables.

Of course, memorising times tables is easy when you’re working with smaller numbers. The bigger ones, not so much... But we’ve put together a new series of genius times tables hacks to help kids work out even the biggest of numbers in their head.

From 1 to 4 561, scroll up and get started with these 11-times tables hacks. See? It's easy!
