Before reading Table 23, here are some interesting facts about Number 23. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. 23 is the lowest prime number with consecutive digits. Reading 23 times really helps us in solving problems including multiplication, division and LCM 23 and other numbers. Let’s start with this short 23- table lesson.

The 23rd multiplication table is required when solving multiplication and long division problems with the 23 multiplier. Let us now look at the table 23 times given below. Reading these multiplication tables can help you solve math problems faster.

### Simple tips and tricks for table of 23 reading

As mentioned above, the number 23 is the smallest number in the prime consecutive number series. Table of 23 will be easier to read if they are given simple tips and tricks. Here are some tips for reading the 23 table.

Below is a table to help children learn the multiplication table of 23.
Bold numbers: First, write 3 even numbers and skip the fourth even digit;
Simple Numbers: Next, write the next 3 odd numbers and skip the odd fourth digit. Follow the same procedure until you reach 23.

Draw some 3 x 3 grids and write the numbers from one to nine as follows.

Even         23       46     69       Skip 8
Odd          92       115     138     Skip 15
Even         161       184    207    230 Skip 22

So here we can see and read accordingly;
Twenty three ones are twenty three
Twenty three two’s are fourth six
Twenty three three’s are sixty nine
Twenty three fours are ninth two
Twenty three five’s are one hundred and fifteen
Twenty three six’s are one hundred and thirty eight
Twenty three seven are one hundred and sixty one
Twenty three eighths are one hundred and eighty four.
Twenty three nine’s are two hundred and seven.
Twenty three tens are two hundred and thirty.

### Examples

Example1: Evaluate 3 plus 3 times 23.

Solution: 3 plus 3 times 23 = 3+3(23) = 3+69 =72
Hence, 3 plus 3 times 23 is 72.

Example 2: What would be the answer if 23 is added to 2 times 23.

Solution: 23 added to 2 times 23 means 23+2(23) = 23 + 46 = 69
Hence, 23 added to 2 times 23 is 138.

Example 3: Shanya has 6 playcard with numbers 46, 21, 56, 102, 92, 68 written on them. Using the Table of 23, can you help Maria identify the cards that are 23 times any number?

Solution:From the table of 23, the first few multiples of 23 are 21, 46, 56, 92, 102, 68. Among the six cards that Maria has, there are two cards with numbers 46 and 92. These are the only numbers which are multiple of 23.

Example 4: Using the table in 23, find the value of 2 plus 23 times 8 minus 6.

Solution: First, using the 23 times table, we would mathematically write 2 plus 23 times 8 minus 6.
2 plus 23 times 8 minus 6 = 2 + 23 × 8 – 6 = 2 + 184 – 6 = 180 So 2 plus 23 times 8 minus 6 is 180.
