Concise Oxford English Dictionary © 2008 Oxford University Press:
▶verb (timeses, timesing, timesed)
informal multiply (a number).
– origin late 20th cent.: use as a verb of times expressing multiplication.

''... when the denominator was *timesed* by three, the same had to be done to the numerator; and so on.'' — W. M. Roth, "Designing Communities", Kluwer Academic Publishers, p31, 1998

In the case of multi-storey buildings where the cost of the lower parts of external walls and stanchions is greater, the group considers it inappropriate to increase the *timesing* factor to walls, Skitmore and Vernon Marston, Cost Modelling, Taylor & Francis, p. 173, 1999

Calculation should be made as waste on the dimension paper and not mentally, and *timesing* should be done consistently." — Willis, et al, Willis's Elements of Quantity Surveying, 11th ed, p33, 2011, Wiley-Blackwell, West Sussex, UK
