There’s a really easy way to learn multiplication – and it doesn’t involve any math at all! Just follow these simple steps:
- Choose a number that you want to multiply by. Let’s say, for example, that you want to multiply 7 by 5.
- Take the number 7 and move the decimal point one place to the right. So instead of 7, you now have 70.
- Multiply 5 by 70 (which is 350).
- Write down the answer: 350.
See? That wasn’t so hard after all! You just used basic addition and subtraction skills to figure out the answer.
