Multiplying Two Numbers Whose Sum of Their Last Digits is 10  and Their Other Digits are the Same

>

Example One :  34  X   36

Solution by steps :

>

1)  Multiply the first digit by one more than itself  :   3 X  4   =  12

Multiplying Two 2-digit Numbers Whose Sum of Their First Digits is Ten  and Their Last Digits are the Same

>

Example  One :      64  X  44

>

Solution   by steps :

>

1) Multiply the first digits and add a last digit:  (6 X  4 )  = 24  +  4   =   28

44*12

Look at the left side of the equation and think 4 x 1 is 4.

Next add up the digit 1 and 2 and think, 3 x 4 is 12. Combine the numbers 4 with the 1 in 12. Think 52, this is the partial answer.

End with 4 x 2 is 8. Place the 8 at the end of 52, for the answer 528

With practice you will be able to do this in seconds.

Of course for multiplying by 12 you could always just write down the first digit. (4) Double the same digit and add the rightmost number. 8+4=12. Carry the one to the first number for 52, and double and place the last digit (8). 528.

Or, you could double the entire number (44) to 88. Carry the 8 to 44 for 52, and place the 8. 528.

Wow, that's great! I've never come across those before and would love to find out why they work. Maybe if I have time I'll try to work it out! :o)

Thanks, the shortcuts may come in handy with any future maths teaching that I do.
