How to Solve

1. Multiply 9 x 9 = 81 (note down 1 and carry 8).
2. Then do cross multiplication and add carry (4 x 9 + 9 x 2 + 8) = 62 (note down 2 and carry 6).
3. Then do cross multiplication and add carry (3 x 9 + 4 x 2 + 6) = 41 (note down 1 and carry 4).
4. Now multiply of left numbers and add carry (3 x 4 + 4) = 16, note it down.
And finally the result we get is 16121.
