### Step 1 :

Step 1 14 X 56 First, we do 1 X 5

### Step 2 :

Step 2 14 X 56 First, we do 1 X 5 Then, we do 4 X 5

### Step 3 :

Step 3 14 X 56 First, we do 1 X 5 Then, we do 4 X 5 Then, we do 1 X 6

### Step 4 :

Step 4 14 X 56 First, we do 1 X 5 Then, we do 4 X 5 Then, we do 1 X 6 Then, the last one: 4 X6
