# I'm confused with it's multiplication table

Return a multiplication table consisting of a 2D multidimensional array. The table should contain all of the products of integers from 0 to maxFactor. For example, if maxFactor is 3 the resulting multiplication table should contain the following: 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 3 0 2 4 6 0 3 6 9

14,531 PointsHi Calvin,

there were multiple errors in your code. First, the challenge tells you to use a jagged array(`int[][]`

), not a multidimensional(`int[,]`

) one. Also, you have to declare and return an array instead of printing the results to the Console.

Well, you can have a look at this code, which should work for the challenge:

```
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
public static class MathHelpers
{
public static int[][] BuildMultiplicationTable(int maxFactor)
{
int[][] arr = new int[maxFactor + 1][];
for (int x = 0; x <= maxFactor; x++)
{
arr[x] = new int[maxFactor + 1];
for (int y = 0; y <= maxFactor; y++)
{
arr[x][y] = x * y;
}
}
return arr;
}
}
}
```

I would recommend you to study the structure instead of just copy&paste. If you get stuck, you can review the videos, and of course feel free to ask me!

Best Regards, Philip

33,372 PointsI am just happy! Here is my solution:

```
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
public static class MathHelpers
{
public static int[][] BuildMultiplicationTable(int maxFactor)
{
int[][] result = new int[maxFactor+1][];
for(int i=0; i <= maxFactor;i++)
{
result[i] = new int[maxFactor+1];
for(int j = 0; j <= maxFactor; j++)
{
result[i][j] = i*j;
}
}
return result;
}
}
}
```

###### Ricardo Ferreira

9,693 PointsQuestion, is the maxFactor + 1 added inside the [] because we count from zero?
