i know a trick that can help young students remember the multiples of
#9 by using their fingers.  starting from the left hand to the right
the left pinky will be number 1 and the last finger wich is the right
pinky will be #10 multiply a number by 9 lets say 9X2 bend finger
number 2 wich will be left ring finger and you will see right pinky
finger as 10 plus the rest of the fingers (8 of them) and its 18. it
keeps going to number 10,bend  the last finger(right pinky) 9x10 nine
fingers remaining to the right each one representing to be a multiple
of ten =90.  ;) enjoy ,,gabriela roman.
