Another best trick is by making them aware that table 2 is similar to 4. Both are related. In 2’s table, we skip 2 numbers each time to get the answers and in 4’s table, we skip 4 numbers each time to get the answer.

This can be simply thought of by using the example:

Make two columns: column 1 and column 2.

In column 1 write the table of 2 ( 2, 4, 6, 8, and so on) then in the same column multiply 2’s tables using the number 2 each time to get a table of 4. i.e 2*2 =4, 4*2 =8, and so on. Take a look at column 1.

Now in column 2, write down all the answers obtained in column 1 and further complete it using 4’s table. I.e 4 x 1= 4, 4 x 2= 8 etc.
