Question in question: Printing a multiplication table
As Simon pointed out in the comments, the question is not so much about "Please review how I am solving the problem of printing a multiplication table given
x", but on the definitions of "processing/object allocation inefficiencies".
Although I have given an answer related to the code (how differently it can be written, and how my thinking may answer the original question), I don't think that's a sufficient answer given the OP's intentions. Hence, all the more I feel like this question might better be relocated back to SO, or maybe even 'swung' to Programmers.SE. In other words, I think it's less contrived to think of this as a question about the implementation design, than the code itself.
Any thoughts about this?
