The numbers between the vertical lines are of two kinds. The ones that are not set equal to other numbers are called **prime numbers**. They are printed in bold. The others are each set equal to two other numbers multiplied by each other. The x indicates multiplication. A number set equal to the multiplication of numbers is called a **product**.

The listing shows that 54 is the product of 6 and 9 (54 = 6 x 9). There is more than one way to get 54. It is also equal to 3 x 18. These are the products that you should learn first. Learning the ones at the start of the list before learning the later ones is also a good idea, because knowing them allows you to understand the products that come later.

Counting by two (2, 4 6, 8, 10) is not the only way to count by steps. Once you get familiar with the numbers, you might try counting by eleven, of any other number. These exercises will give you a fast way to become skilled in arithmetic.
