Tips for Multiplication of Whole Numbers- Multiplication is probably the only operation in mathematics that has a twin. If that fascinates you to explore more, let's learn a few tips to learn how to multiply whole numbers. First of all, whole numbers are integers. They are numbers without a fraction. Therefore, it is competitively easy to multiply whole numbers. In multiplication, there is a multiplicand and a multiplier. For example, 13 x 26, the number 13 here is the multiplicand, and the number 26 is the multiplier. In learning the tricks, keep in mind that every person thinks differently, so if a trick doesn't work for you, leave that trick. - The twin trick is probably the best tip. If you forget 5 x 4, you probably remember 4 x 5 - Double the number. For example, 2 x 6, add 6 twice like 6 + 6 = 12. The same is the answer for 2 x 6. The double trick is only for two times of any number. - For multiplication of more than one digit, try doing it once from right to left and then left to right. Find out which one you find easy and then follow that trick. Multiply each digit with the other one by one. Other than these, the best tip is to learn the tables. These multiplication worksheets focus on the use of whole numbers. Great to introduce the concept.
