How to Multiply Single Digits by Multiples of 10 - Multiplying is always fun, especially when the result is in the form of a series. The multiples of any number are the result found by multiplying any counting number with that whole number. For instance, the multiples of 4 are; 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on. The easiest and interesting multiples are the multiples of 10 because they go on like 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and so on. They are easiest to memorize, but is it also easy to play single-digit multiplication with them? In multiplying a single digit (1-9) with multiples of 10, the strategy is based on place value and operation properties. Here comes an example. 2 x 50 It is 2 times 50. In finding the answer, consider 2 rows with 50 in each row. Take a piece of paper and draw 5 lines, each representing count of 10 in two separate rows. Now count the lines in 10s. Like 10, 20, 30. Counting both the rows will give you the answer 100. And the answer to 2 x 50 is also 100. By using this trick, you can quickly multiply a single digit with any multiple of 10.
