Tips for Multiplying Horizontally - You are not wrong; multiplication is tough, unlike addition and subtraction. But, read this example thoroughly, and you will be able to learn to multiply horizontally in no time. Let's pretend that your dad told you to split your playroom into four sections so that you can get a brand-new Minion carpet. Now, each section will have a carpet with a different minion. How exciting is that? Each section has a different area, so your dad told you to note down the size of the carpet for each section. The total area of the room is 72 x 28 meters. - In the first step, we will solve the area of each section by multiplying the length and breadth of each rectangle individually. - Now, the next step is simple, just add all of the areas together, and you will find the overall area of the rectangle. 1400 + 40 + 560 + 16 = 2016 Now, if you have trouble believing how can you solve something so hard, so easily. Then, take your dad's phone out and multiply 72 with 28. You'll find out the answer. This section has great math drill worksheets that practice horizontal (left to right) multiplication.
