17x25=425. Whenever you multiply a number that ends in a 5, the result will end in either a 5 or a 0.

11x30=?

11x30=330. When you multiply a two-digit number ending in zero by 11, repeat the first digit and then add a zero on the end to find the answer.

21x52=?

21x52=1092. Did you use a calculator or break it down and do it in your head? It's just 20 times 52, plus one extra 52.

34x12=?

34x12=408. When two even numbers are multiplied, the answer is also even.

98x10=?

98x10=980. Here the rule of ten applies.

61x29=?

61x29=1,769. You could try multiplying 60x29, then adding one extra 29!

50x31=?

50x31=1,550. If it makes it easier, you can break problems like this down. Multiplying 31 by 5 and then multiplying that answer by 10 will get you to the same place.

42x70=?

42x70=2,940. Multiply 42 by 7, then add a zero at the end!

11x95=?

11x95=1,045. Think about it - you could just add 950 and 95.

52x71=?

52x71=3,692. Multiply 52 by 70, then add an extra 52.

85x29=?

85x29=2,465. Sometimes, when dealing with multiples of five, breaking things down can help. 5x17=85. So, multiplying 29 by 5, and then that answer by 17 will get you to the same place.

69x93=?

69x93=6,417. Did you break this down? Multiply 70 by 93, then subtract 93.

87x19=?

87x19=1,653. Try multiplying 87 by 20, then subtracting the extra 87!

13x77=?

13x77=1,001. Remember, when you multiply a pair of odd numbers, the answer will always be odd. How did you break this one down into manageable parts?

51x45=?

51x45=2,295. Multiply 45 by 50, then add an extra 45, right?

23x76=?

23x76=1,748. When an odd number and even number are multiplied. the answer is always an even number.

52x11=?

52x11=572. That's 520 plus 52. Does that make sense? Use the 11 to your best advantage.

85x82=?

85x82=6,970. 8x8 is 64, which can give you a rough instant idea of around what the final answer will start with. Remember your simple multiples!

90x50=?

90x50=4,500. When multiplying by two-digit numbers that end in 0, each adds a 0 to the final answer.

98x71=?

98x71=6,958. Don't panic - it's just 98 times 70, then an extra 98. That's 6,860 plus 98, which is 6,958.

84x79=?

84x79=6,636. Think about multiplying 84 by 80, then take things from there.

12x66=?

12x66=792. You can break this down into the multiples of 12 to make it a little easier. For example: 66x4x3=792.

88x88=?

88x88=7,744. Multiply 88 by 8, then multiply 88 by 80, then add the results. So many 8s!

51x52=?

51x52=2,652. You know 50 times 50 is 2,500, so your answer has to be a little bit more than that.

78x23=?

78x23=1,794. Remember, multiplying an odd and an even number always results in an even number.

62x58=?

62x58=3,596. Will you round down the 62 to make this one easier, or round up the 58?
