Multiplication : Simplified Procedure for Large Numbers

This page extends the multiplication in first principles into a simplified procedure for multiplication of large numbers, which is called multiplication by place-value with regrouping.

multiplication two digit numbers Consider multiplication of `12` and `3`.

This is performed as, combine `12` repeatedly `3` times and count the combined quantity.

multiplication two digit numbers Considering the multiplication `12xx3`.

Combining `12` repeatedly `3` times is shown in the figure. There are `3` tens and `6` units which together form value `36`.

multiplication two digit numbers Considering the multiplication `12xx3`. The number `12` is given in the place value format in the figure.

The repeated addition is visualized and the multiplication is performed as illustrated in the figure.

The units place is multiplied as `2xx3=6` and the tens place is multiplied as `1xx3 = 3`. The result of the multiplication is `36`.

multiplication with carryover two digit numbers Consider the multiplication `26xx2`. That is, `26` is repeated twice as shown in the figure. Counting the two quantities together, there are `4` tens and `12` units. The combined value is `52`.

Considering the multiplication `26xx2`. That is, `26` is repeated twice and combined as shown in the figure.multiplication two digit numbers Note that `10` units are regrouped together to form the `1` ten. So the result of the multiplication is `52`.

Considering the multiplication of `26xx2`. The number `26` is given in the place value format in the figure.multiplication of two digit numbers A simplified procedure Multiplication by Place-value with regrouping is given in the figure.

In the units place, `6` and `2` are multiplied to `12`. The `10` unit is converted to `1` ten and moved to the tens position. This regrouping `10` of lower place-value to `1` of the immediate higher place-value is carry over. The remaining units `2` is retained.

In the tens place, `2` and `2` are multiplied to `4` and the carry over is added to that. So, the tens place of result is `4+1=5`.

The result is `52`.

multiplication of larger two digit numbers Consider the multiplication: `34xx4`. One `34` is shown in the figure.

To multiply, the quantity `34` can be repeated `4` times or the simplified procedure "multiplication by place-value with regrouping" can be used.

multiplication of larger two digit numbers Considering the multiplication: `34xx4`. The value `34` is repeated `4` times and combined as shown in the figure. The combined quantity makes `12` tens and `16` units.

The `10` tens are regrouped into `1` hundred. The `10` units are regrouped into `1` ten. Then the number of hundreds, tens, and units are counted to the result `136`.

multiplication of larger two digit numbers Considering the multiplication: `34xx4`. The numbers are given in the place value in the figure.

A simplified procedure, Multiplication by Place-value is given in the figure.

The digit in the units place is multiplied by the multiplier. The tens formed is carried over to the tens position,
Then the digit in the tens place is multiplied by the multiplier. The hundreds formed is carried over to the hundreds position.

The result of the multiplication is `136`.

multiplication of larger two digit numbers Consider the multiplication of `47` and `23`. The numbers are shown in the place value format in the figure.

The multiplication in place value is illustrated. The product is `1081`.

Multiplication by Place-value with Regrouping - Simplified Procedure : Two numbers are multiplied as illustrated in the figure.multiplication Note: The procedure combines `10` units into `1` ten as carry over and so on for higher place-values.
