English term or phrase: one times table
Could you please tell me if you write (British):

one times table, two times table, three times table, etc.
or
one-times table, two-times table, three times table, etc.

And is one-time table, two-time table, etc. correct too?

English translation:One times table, two times table, etc.
Explanation:
I would definitely go for the option without the hyphen.

One-time table, etc. is NOT correct

disagree  Richard Benham: What reason is there to go against the general rule here?//The general rule on hyphenation.//Hyphens are compulsory for compound adjectives, phrases used adjectivally, etc. The Americans tend to leave them out, despite the Chicago Style Manual inter alia.

  -> What you say may be valid, but (as I have already stressed) it does not apply here. I suggest you do a Google search on the term and see just how infrequently the hyphen is used.
