Multiplication by
1 Digit Number

NUMBERS AND OPERATIONS

SIXTH GRADE

The multiplication is that operation that consists of calculating the product (result) that is obtained by adding the same number (factor or multiplicand) so many times as the value of the other number (factor or multiplicator or multiplier).

Multiplication is used when we have to replace the calculation of certain repetitive additions (for example: 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8) by a more efficient method (2 x 4 = 8).

In general, multiplication is considered the inverse operation of division.

Look at the solved multiplication that we propose and you will learn how to calculate a multiplication of three digits in the multiplicand by one digit in the multiplier without regrouping:

multiplication 3 by 1 digit no regrouping - step 1

Let's multiply 612 x 3

1st) We start by multiplying the multiplier (lower digit) by the number of the ones of the multiplicand (upper digit):

3 x 2 = 6 ones

2nd) Next, we will write the result of the multiplication (6) below the horizontal dividing line and aligning it with the figure of the ones.

3rd) We will multiply, on this occasion, the figure of the multiplier (table of 3) by the figure of the tens of the multiplicand:

3 x 1 = 3 tens

4th) Next, we write the result of the multiplication (3) below the figure of the tens in an aligned way and below the horizontal dividing line.

We show you a solved example that will help you learn step by step how to solve three-digit multiplication in the multiplicand by one digit in the multiplier and regrouping:

multiplication 3 by 1 digit with regrouping - step 1

Let's multiply 537 x 7

1st) We start by multiplying the multiplier (lower digit) by the number of the ones of the multiplicand (upper digit):

7 x 7 = 49 ones

2nd) The 49 represents 4 tens and 9 ones. We will align the digit 9 below the dividing line (since it corresponds to the ones) and we will save the 4 tens in the tens column to add them in the next step.

3rd) We will multiply, on this occasion, the figure of the multiplier (table of 7) by the figure of the tens of the multiplicand:

7 x 3 = 21 tens

We will add to the result the 4 tens that we had previously saved:

21 + 4 = 25 tens

4th) In the tens column, 25 represents 2 hundreds and 5 tens. We will align the figure 5 below the dividing line (since it corresponds to the tens) and we will save the 2 hundreds in the hundreds column to add them in the next step.

We will add to the result the 2 hundreds that we had previously saved:

35 + 2 = 37 hundreds

6th) Finally, we write the result of the multiplication (37) below the figure of the hundreds and after the horizontal dividing line.

You have already solved the multiplication! The result: 537 x 7 = 3,759

Here are some mental math activities to test your memory and show that you already know all the multiplication tables.

Applying the Commutative Property of Multiplication

SIXTH GRADE

One of the most important fundamental properties of multiplication is "commutativity":

A x B = B x A

The Commutative Property of Multiplication states that "the order in which the factors are multiplied does not alter the product".

In other words, when we multiply two numbers (factors) with each other, the order in which they are multiplied will not matter because the result (product) will always be the same.

COMMUTATIVE PROPERTY OF MULTIPLICATION

Apply the Associative Property of Multiplication

SIXTH GRADE

Another of the fundamental properties of multiplication is "associativity", where the use of parentheses tells us in what order we must solve the multiplications :

A x ( B x C ) = ( A x B ) x C

The Associative Property of Multiplication determines that "when three or more numbers are multiplied, the result is the same regardless of the order in which the factors are multiplied".

In other words, when we multiply three or more numbers (factors) with each other, the order in which they are multiplied will not matter because the result (product) will always be the same.

ASSOCIATIVE PROPERTY OF MULTIPLICATION

Apply the Distributive Property of Multiplication over Addition

SIXTH GRADE

We are going to learn yet another one of the fundamental properties of multiplication, in this case, the property called "distributivity of addition", where both the addition and multiplication algorithms are combined through the use of parentheses, which indicate the hierarchy or order in which we must solve the combined operations:

A x ( B + C ) = ( A x B ) + ( A x C )

The Distributive Property of Multiplication over addition states that " the sum of two numbers multiplied by a third number is equal to the sum of each addend multiplied by the third number".

DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY OF MULTIPLICATION OVER ADDITION

Apply the Distributive Property of Multiplication over Subtraction

SIXTH GRADE

Finally, we will learn the fourth of the fundamental properties of multiplication, the property known as the "distributivity of subtraction", where both the subtraction and multiplication algorithms are combined through the use of parentheses, which indicate the hierarchy or order in which we must solve the combined operations:

A x ( B - C ) = ( A x B ) - ( A x C )

The Distributive Property of Multiplication over subtraction establishes that "the subtraction of two numbers multiplied by a third number is equal to the subtraction of each number multiplied by the third number".
