An alternative solution, with table-formatted output. 

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void) {
    for (int a = 1; a < 10; a++) {
        // Print the several facts for this row.
        for (int b = 1; b < 10; b++) {
            printf("%3d", a*b);
        }
        printf("\n");  // end the line
    }
}

Note the format string "%3d" in printf. See the printf documentation to understand what that does.
