#### Trick 1: **Multiplication of any 3 digit numbers**

Take any two numbers like 208 and 206

Now subtract the number at units place

208-8=200

206-6=200

Now select any number and add the unit digit of another number

208+6=214

Now multiply, 214×200=42800

Now multiply the unit digits of both numbers, 8×6=48

Add, 42800+48=42848

The product of the numbers 208 and 206 is 42848

#### Trick 2: **Multiplication of any 2 digit numbers**

Take 2 numbers like 17 and 19

Place the larger number(19) at the top and the 2nd digit of the smaller number(7) in the bottom.

19

7

Add 19+7=26, Then multiply 26×10=260

Now, multiply the units digit of both numbers, i.e., 7×9=63.

Add the two numbers, 260+63 and the answer is 323.

#### Trick 3: Squaring** 2 digit numbers**

Take any number such as 77. Now add or subtract the number to make it to its nearest multiple of 10.

In this case, add 3 to the number to reach the nearest 10, i.e., 77+3=80

Now, (77+3) x (77-3)=80 x 74=5920

The number add was 3. Now square the number and add it to the above product.

Square of 3=9

5920+9=5929

#### Trick 4: **Multiplication of a number with 9’s**

In this type of multiplication, the multiplier (9’s) and the multiplicand should have equal number of digits.

Take numbers as 567 and 999.

Subtract 567 by 1, 567-1=566

The complement of 567 (1000-567) is 433

Therefore the answer is 566433 (“566” “433”)

#### Trick 5: **Multiplication of a number with 11**

Put the number ‘0’ in front of the above number.

New number is 06632457

Now add,

7+0=7

7+5=12 (the 1 will get carry over)

4+5+1=10 (the 1 will get carry over)

2+4+1=7

3+2=5

6+3=9

6+6=12(the 1 will get carry over)

0+6+1=7

Therefore the answer=72957027
