Whole numbers are same as the counting Numbers starting from 1, 2 , 3 , 4 , 5… and they includes 0 too. Product of any two whole numbers is always Whole Number which is called as Closure property of multiplication of whole numbers. The number which is multiplied is called as a factor and the result is called as a product.
To multiply two whole numbers, first write the numbers below each other and align the same units i.e align the units, ones, and hundred under one another. Then start multiplying the numbers. Start with right end digit of the whole number then multiply every column. Rule for multiplication is that when product of any column is equal to or less than 9 , then write it directly , but when it is greater than 9 , then we have to write the ones digit number and carry the tens digit to the next column.
Multiplication of whole number can be explained by an example:
The product 110 is also a whole number and thus it proves the closure property.
Multiplication is one of the basic operation of Algebra in mathematics. Multiplication is generally used to scale one number by another number. A '*' sign is used to represent multiplication operation. Sometimes multiplication also denoted by a ‘middle dot’ or ‘x’. These different notation are there to reduce the confusion between the multiplication sign ...Read More
Powers of 10 is a method for writing a number in a simplified form. The powers can be in both positive and negative. When we multiply any number with the power of 10 or by multiply by powers of 10, certain rules are followed.
We know that multiplication of two Numbers can be done by repeated addition, when the two numbers are smaller. In case we come across the bigger numbers, we are not able to get the result by simple addition. Thus we use column method to get the product of the given numbers.
In column multiplication, when we have two numbers say 124 X 35. Here we first multi...Read More
