## Learn How To Multiply Numbers

 Step 1 First, state the problem. We want to multiply the number 9 by the number 2. Step 2 Next we multiply numbers 9 and 2; the answer (product) of 2 times 9 is 18.  Bring the 8 down in column A (one column) and carry the 1 to the tens column B. Step 3 Last step is to bring the carried 1 in the tens column down to the answer (product) line. We now have the complete answer to 2 times 9 which is 18. Step 4 Complete answer to 2 x 9 = 9 + 9 = 18. CBA        9  x 2 ——— CBA   1     9  x 2 ———    8 1     9  x 2 ———    18 1     9  x 2 ———    18

 Step 1 Now let's look at the easiest way to multiply two numbers. Step 2 Here we have the standard way of multiplying two numbers. Multiply the first number: 153 x 4 = 612 Multiply the second number: 153 x 2 = 306 Now add the two numbers as shown below to get the answer (product) of the multiplication problem:           612  + 306   ——————    3672 +153     × +24   ———————       153     ×  24   ———————        1        153     ×  24   ———————         2       21        153     ×  24   ———————        12       21        153     ×  24   ———————       612       21        153     ×  24   ———————       612                 153     ×  24   ———————       612        6       1          153     ×  24   ———————       612       06       1          153     ×  24   ———————       612      306       1          153     ×  24   ———————       612      306                  153     ×  24   ———————       612      306    ———————     +3672
