# Is there a way to add a 0 in the corner of a multiplication table

This is my code:

```def multiply(end):
pro = ""
for i in range(end + 1):
for j in range(end + 1):
pro += str(i * j) + "t"
pro += "n"
return pro
```

When I run my code it returns when I call the function multiply(4):

```0   0   0   0   0
0   1   2   3   4
0   2   4   6   8
0   3   6   9   12
0   4   8   12  16
```

I want it to return as:

```0   1   2   3   4
1   1   2   3   4
2   2   4   6   8
3   3   6   9   12
4   4   8   12  16
```

What do I have to change and I also need to return the table instead of printing the table.

you need to add a few checks to your function but this should work –

```def multiply(end):
pro = ""
for i in range(0,end + 1):
for j in range(0,end + 1):
if i != 0 and j != 0:
pro += str(i * j) + "t"
else:
pro += str(max(j,i)) + "t"
pro += "n"
return pro
```

with this `multuply(4)` has an output of –

```0       1       2       3       4
1       1       2       3       4
2       2       4       6       8
3       3       6       9       12
4       4       8       12      16
```
