Multiplication is an art of taking short cuts to perform additions. It not only helps us add multiple occurrences of a number but also numbers that are different by reorganizing them.
When the two numbers are separated by even numbers and are fairly close to each other, you can use squares to find the answer. This will be especially helpful if the average of the two numbers is multiple of 5.
For example: 38 * 32
Mathematical problems can be solved in multiple ways. In order to develop strong mathematical acumen, I advice my students to practice as many approaches as they can think of and then finally suggest the ones that best fit the specific case. For example, there are many ways to solve a two digit multiplication question.
Let's look at this one:
54 * 56
This is the basic foundation of multiplication - the way we defined it - short cut to addition.
"MULDIS" involves use of distributive property.
Let's take the example of 7 * 456
Here in this blog, we will discuss a trick to multiply 2 digit number by another 2 digit number
****** For example: Let's solve 79 * 86
