How to Solve

1. Multiply (6 x 8) = 48 (note down 8 carry 4).
2. Then do cross multiplication( 5 x 8 + 6 x 4 + 4 (add carry)) = 68 (note down 8 carry 6).
3. Again (6 x 5 + 5 x 4 + 4 x 8 + 6 (add carry)) = 88 (note down 8 carry 8).
4. Again do cross multiplication and add carry (5 x 5 + 4 x 4 + 8) = 49 (note down 9 carry 4).
5. Do multiplication of left numbers (4 x 5 + 4) = 24, note it down.
And finally the result we get is 249888.

6. arundhuti says:

i need an example of multiplication of 4 digit number with 3 digit number

7. deepak says:

great but not able to multiply 999 X 999 by this technique.Pl guide

• then try this
999 x 9 = 8991 add two zero to the left of number then
999 x 9 = 8991 add one zero then
999 x 9 = 8991 lastly add all you will get the ans 899100 + 89910 + 8991 = 998001

• Suneela Voleti says:

U can solve 999X999 through this method. I have got the answer as follows:
1) 9×9=81 , note down 1 & carry 8
2)9×9+9×9=162+8=170, note 0 & carry 17
3)9×9+9×9+9×9=243+17=260,note 0 & carry 26
4) 9×9+9×9+26=188, note 8 & carry 18
5) 9×9=81+18=99 note down 99

• ishan says:

999*999= 999* (1000-1)=999000-999= 998001

10. Hetal says:

How can we solve four digit no withthree digit for ex 1013 and 981

• Raj says:

yes, u can use 0 infront of the 3 digit number. i.e. 1013 x 0981

• Kundan kumar srivastava says:

Yes it can write down right to Left
1013×981
1) (3×1)=3 write down 3
2) (3×8)+(1×1) = 25 WD 5 Carry 2
3) (3×9)+(1×8)+(0x1)+2= WD 7 Carry 3
4) (1×1)+(0x8)+(1×9)+3= 13 WD 3 Carry 1
5) (1×8)+(9×0)+1=9 WD 9
6) (1×9) =9 WD 9

1013×981 ans is 993753
