How To: Multiply 2 digit numbers using the grid method

Multiply 2 digit numbers using the grid method

This video shows the method to multiply two digit numbers using the grid method. First make a grid of three rows and three columns. Put a cross in the first row and first column or the (1,1) position. Separate the ones and the tens in the number. In our example 43 is broken into 40,3 and 56 is broken into 50,6. Put these numbers in the remaining places in the first row and first column. Now multiply every number with the other and place it in the corresponding location in the grid. In our example, we get 2000, 150, 240 and 18. Now add these numbers together to find out the final result. So, we get 2408 as our answer. This finishes the task.
