Multiplication of two-digit numbers and one-digit numbers:

Students find it difficult to remember the answer for tables of double-digit and single-digit numbers. For this, you will require the basic table given in the point-1. To explain it in a better way we have to use some examples to understand the shortcut:

Let us try 15 X 8

  1. Multiply one-digit number with 10, i.e. 8 X 10 which equals 80
  2. Now multiple unit digit of the double-digit number by the one-digit number, i.e. 5 X 8 which equals 40. 
  3. Now add the results of point A and B, i.e. 80+40= 120
  4. The answer to 15X8=120

Multiplying two-digit numbers could be tricky, for this you should follow the steps below given example:

Let’s try it with 19 X 15

  1. Choose any one number from the two given above, and multiply it by 10, i.e. 19X10=190
  2. Now multiple unit digit of the other number with 10, i.e. 5X10=50
  3. Multiple unit digits of both numbers, i.e. 9X5=45
  4. Sum values of all three points A, B, and C= 190+50+45=285
  5. The answer to 19X15=285

Base Method Near 100

a) When both number Greater than 100

Eg1. 110*115

Step 1- multiplication of 15*10=150

Step 2- cross addition – 110+15 or 115+10= 125

Step 3- base is 100 multiplying the step 2 by 100= 12500

step 4- add step 1 and step 3= 12500+150= 12650

b) When both number less than 100

Eg2. 93*98

Step1-Multiplication of (-2*-7)= +14

Step2 -Now add (-2) to 93 or (-7) to 98= 91

Step3- step 2*100= 9100{as Base is 100}

Step4- 9100+14= 9114

c) When one number greater than 100 and other is less than 100

Eg3. 95*105

Step1-Multiplication of (-5*5)= -025

Step2 -Now add (5) to 95 or (-5) to 105= 100

Step3- step 2*100= { Base is 100}

Step4- 10000-25=9975
