Simple Maths Problems on Table 2 for Kids

Here are a few simple word problems that will make their learning 2 tables easier. These word problems will help them to understand the real scenario and help them solve the problem based on the scenario:

1. Every day Louis drinks 2 glasses of juice in the morning and at night. How many total glasses of juice will he drink in 4 days?


The number of glasses Louis drink juice each day = 2 i.e morning and night.

1. How is a table of 2 acquired?

It can be easily obtained by repetitively adding 2 numbers to the previous sum.

2 x 1 = 2
2 x 2 = I.e = (2+2)= 4
2 x 3 = I.e  = (2+2+2) = 6
2 x 4 = I.e= (2+2+2+2) = 8 and so on.

2. How can you write the 2 times table in words?

2 times 6 = 12.
2 times 7 = 14.
2 times 8 = 16.
2 times 9 = 18.
2 times 10 = 2.0

We hope children have learned the 2 tables by using various exercises and tips. It is the second table in learning multiplication and division for primary classes. This lesson will definitely help them in their personal life and academics.
