Math quiz: mercredi le 5 octobre

Are you able to use mental strategies to multiply numbers?  Being able to multiply in your head is so much easier than having to write it down and go through the problem.

One mental strategy is « le double et le démi » (the double and the half).

25 x 16   becomes

50 x 8  (You double the first number and halve the second).

5 x8 = 40  (Take the zero off to make it easier to multiply using your times tables).

Add the zero back in

= 400

 

Try to answer this one mentally on your own, and you can check afterwards by multiplying it out long-hand.

45 x 18
