Multiplication with Carrying

Multiplication with Carrying is explained.


(1) Multiplication of two digit number by one digit number

Find the value of 6 × 5.



Step 1:-

Write ones of product at ones place. In given case, 30 is product.  So 0 is the ones of product.

Step 2 :-

Carry number of tens over to add in product of number at tens of multiplicand and multiplier.

In this case, 3 is the number at tens place of 30.So carry it over to add in the multiplication of 3 and 5.

Multiply number at tens, ie, 3 and multiplier, ie, 5. Add carry over number in the product.

Adding carry over number 3 in 15 = 18

Multiplication as a whole is shown below:-

(2) Multiplication of three digit number by two digit number


Step 1:-

First multiply multiplicand by ones of multiplier.

Multiply multiplicand 652 by number at ones place of multiplier, ie, 4 with carry over.

Step 2:-

Now multiply multiplicand by tens of multiplier.

Multiply multiplicand 652 by number at tens of multiplier, ie, 30(= 3 tens) with carry over.

Step 3 :-

Add both products to get final product.

By applying same method, you can solve any large number of multiplications.
