# 2 Times Tables Worksheets

### About These 15 Worksheets

These worksheets are packed with a variety of fun challenges, from simple multiplication problems to detective-like pattern challenges. As you work through them, not only will you become a pro at multiplying by 2, but you’ll also develop sharper thinking skills, making you ready for even bigger math adventures. The more you solve these problems, the more comfortable you become with multiplying by 2. Before you know it, you’ll be answering these questions without even needing to think hard!

The number 2 is like a super helper when it comes to multiplication. Whenever you multiply any number by 2, it’s like you’re doubling that number. In fact, multiplying something by 2 is doubling the value of it. For example, 2 times 3 is the same as adding 3 + 3, which equals 6.

### The Types of Problems on the Worksheets

**Basic Multiplication Problems** – These questions are simple and direct. They’ll have one number that you’ll need to multiply by 2. For instance:

Question – What’s 2 x 4?

Answer – 8 (Because 4 + 4 = 8)

**Illustrated Problems** – Some questions will come with fun drawings, like pairs of shoes or sets of bunny ears. These pictures will help you visualize the multiplication. For example, if there’s a drawing of 5 pairs of shoes, and you know each pair has 2 shoes, then you’ve got 5 times 2, which equals 10 shoes in total!

**Wordy Adventures** – Here, you’ll find mini-stories that contain multiplication challenges. For example:

“Timmy has 3 jars. He puts 2 candies in each jar. How many candies did Timmy use in total?”

**Your challenge** – 3 times 2 equals 6 candies.

**Mystery Problems** – These are exciting! They might give you the answer, and you’ll have to figure out the multiplication that led to it. Like:

**Question** – Which of these gives 8?

**Choices** – 2 x 3, 2 x 4, 2 x 5

The correct choice would be 2 x 4!

**Fill-the-Blanks** – Here, part of the problem is hidden, and it’s up to you to complete it. Imagine seeing:

2 x ___ = 14

You would figure out that the missing number is 7 because 2 times 7 equals 14!

**Pattern Problems** – These are fun because they let you play detective. You’ll look at patterns and sequences involving the number 2. For instance, if you see a list like 2, 4, __, 8, 10, you’ll fill in the missing number. In this case, it’s 6.

### What are 2 Times Tables?

These are multiplication facts when multiplying various numbers by 2. These tables are foundational in learning multiplication and are often one of the first sets of multiplication facts that students learn due to their simplicity and pattern.

Here’s a breakdown of the 2 Times Tables:

2 x 1 = 2 – This means if you have 1 group of 2 items, you have a total of 2 items.

2 x 2 = 4 – If you have 2 groups of 2 items, you have a total of 4 items.

2 x 3 = 6 – With 3 groups of 2 items, you get a total of 6 items.

2 x 4 = 8 – 4 groups of 2 items give you 8 items in all.

2 x 5 = 10 – 5 groups of 2 items result in 10 items.

2 x 6 = 12 – For 6 groups of 2 items, you’ll have 12 items.

2 x 7 = 14 – 7 groups of 2 items give a total of 14 items.

2 x 8 = 16 – 8 groups of 2 items result in 16 items.

2 x 9 = 18 – With 9 groups of 2 items, you get a total of 18 items.

2 x 10 = 20 – 10 groups of 2 items provide a total of 20 items.

Notice the pattern? Every time you multiply a number by 2, you’re essentially doubling that number. Understanding this pattern makes it easier to remember and work with the 2 Times Tables. In fact, as you progress with larger numbers, the pattern continues (e.g., 2 x 11 = 22, 2 x 12 = 24, and so on).
