• 201x4... easy! 1.Just multiply 200x4 2. Then multiply 4x1 3. Last add the products 800+4=804

I hope this helps
• Hi
is it always just me or are the videos easy but the test are really hard.

see you next time!
• agreed definatly
• Has anyone ever heard of lattice multipliation?
• I don't know what is "lattice multiplication".
• Hi!

My question is pretty random, but can you ÷ using the same standered way we're using?
I know it works for addition, subtration and multiplacation!

Thanks!
• yes you can :D
• Why do we write the bigger number first and the smaller number last
• Well, It helps when you do long multiplication (high digit * high digit) for example:
2345
x2345
Then you have to carry (regrouping) and you write the regrouping on top of the digit to the right of the digit you just added. for example:
1
22
+19
41
and plus if you write it on paper, it would be easier and Sal did it on the board with a digital pen.
• great job!but i still cant figure 1*1?
• Any number multiplied by 1 is the number itself. So 1*1 = 1, 1*2 = 2, 1*3 = 3, and so on. If you are a visual learner then think of it like this: if you have one group of strawberries and that group has one strawberry in it then how many strawberries are there? The answer is 1.
