Answer: Option (C)
How to Solve

1. Multiply 3 x 3 = 9. Note down 9 then,
2. Do Cross-multiplication (4 x 3) = 12 and (6 x 3) = 18.
3. Add both the result (4 x 3 + 6 x 3) = 30 and write down 0 to the left of 9 and carry 3.
4. Multiply left hand side numbers (4 x 6) = 24 and add carry (24 + 3) = 27 and write down to the left of 0.
Finally the result we get is 2709. (Try to calculate all four steps in mind).

4. Avi says:

Very effectively……

5. NIkhil maske says:

not getting solution for 21 * 35????

1*5=5
2*3=6 5*1=5
1 carry and 15
3*2=6 + carry 1 i.e. 7
715 ?????
but ans is 735

• Admin says:

1X5 = 5, put 5.
5×2 = 10,3×1 = 3 ( 10 + 3 ) = 13 put 3 carry 1.
3×2 = 6 , 6 + 1(carry) = 7
So, ans is 735

• Dr R K Shakya says:

21*35=
1*5=5
(3*!=3)and(5*2=10) so 3+10=13 write 3 left to 5 and take 1 carry
now 3*2=6 and then 6+1=7 so the ans is 735

• kirti says:

dont multiply 2*3
do it |ke
5*1=5
(1*3=3)+(5*2)=13
3*2=6+caary +1=7
so ans will be 735

• veera babu says:

21*35
1*5=5 please place it in the last and
do cross multiplication like this
21
35
2*5 & 3*1
not like this 2*3& 1*5
10+3=13
place 3 in left of 5
and finally multiply 2*3 and add 1 as carry then answer is 735
