Multiplying by 25 and 125

To multiply by 25 you multiply by 100 (just add two 0’s to the end of the number) then divide by 4, since 100 = 25×4. Note: to divide by 4 your can just divide by 2 twice, since 2×2 = 4. 64×25 = 6400/4 = 3200/2 = 1600. 58×25 = 5800/4 = 2900/2 = 1450. To multiply by 125, you multiply by 1000 then divide by 8 since 8×125 = 1000. Notice that 8 = 2×2x2. So, to divide by 1000 add three [...]


Multiplying by 9, or 99, or 999

  ·       Multiplying by 9 is really multiplying by 10-1.         So, 9×9 is just 9x (10-1) which is 9×10-9 which is 90-9 or 81. ·      Let’s try a harder example: 46×9 = 46×10-46 = 460-46 = 414. ·      One more example: 68×9 = 680-68 = 612.        To multiply by 99, you multiply by 100-1.         So, 46×99 = 46x (100-1) = 4600-46 = 4554.         M [...]


The 11 Rule

 To multiply any two digit number by 11:  For this example we will use 34.         ·      S  Separate the two digits in you mind (3__4).         ·    Notice the hole between them!         ·      Add the 6 and the 4 together (3+4=7)         ·       Put the resulting 7 in the hole 374. That's it! 11 x 34=374 The only thing tricky to remember is that if [...]
