Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be multiplying a two-digit number by a one-digit number using a written method.

Step 1: Multiply 3 and 3 to make 9.

Step 2: Multiply 3 and 20 to make 60. We can use the fact 3 x 2 = 6 to help with this.

Step 3: Add together the two products of 60 and 9.

Let's try an example question together.

Example

We are trying to work out 13 lots of 4.

Step 1: 4 x 3 = 12

Steps 2: 4 x 10 = 40

Step 3: 40 + 12 = 52

So, 13 × 4 =  52

Now you've seen the method to use, it's your turn to try some questions.
