Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, you must multiply decimal numbers by a whole number.



Here are two methods for working out 4 lots of 1.64.


Find four lots of 1.64.
Here we add 1.64 four times.

Here we multiply 1.64 by 4.

Remember, multiply 164 by 4
and divide your answer by 100.

       4 x
400      4 x 100
240      4 x 60
       16      4 x 4


Answer: 656 ÷ 100 = 6.56.

Your two answers should be the same, but it is quicker to multiply when using larger numbers.
