explains this a little differently: Take the number you are multiplying 9 by and subtract one. That number is the first number in the solution. Then subtract that number from nine. That number is the second number of the solution. Examples: 4 * 9 = 36 4-1=3 9-3=6 solution = 36 8 * 9 = 72 8-1=7 9-7=2 solution = 72 5 * 9 = 45 5-1=4

9-4=5 solution = 45 Take the one-digit number you are multipling by nine, and insert a zero to its right. Then subtract the original number from it. For example: if the problem is 9 * 6, insert a zero to the right of the six, then subtract six: 9 * 6 = 60 - 6 = 54 Multiplying a 2-digit number by 11  A tip sent in by Bill Eldridge: Simply add the first and second digits and place the result between them. Here's an example using 24 as the 2-digit number to be multiplied by 11: 2 + 4 = 6 so 24 × 11 = 264. This can be done using any 2-digit number. (If the sum is 10 or greater, don't forget to carry the one.) Multiplying any number by 11 Lonnie Dennis II writes in: Let's say, for example, you wanted to multiply 54321 by 11. First, let's look at the problem the long way... 54321 x 11

54321 + 543210 = 597531 Now let's look at the easy way... 11 × 54321 = 5 4+5 4+3 3+2 2+1 1 = 597531 Do you see the pattern? In a way, you're simply adding the digit to whatever comes before it. But you must work from right to left. The reason I work from right to left is that if the numbers, when added together, sum to more than 9, then you have something to carry over. Let's look at another example... 11 × 9527136
