Multiplying by the grid method

To work out 45 x 5 break the 2-digit number up and multiply by them by the other number.

40 x 5 = 200

2 x 5 = 10

Add the answers together.

200 + 10 = 210

So

42 x 5 = 210

If you have a bigger numbers split them into a table to work out the answer. Try 52 x 13.

x502
1050020
31506

Now add the columns together

x502
1050020
31506
 65026

650 + 26 = 676

So
