Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Written multiplication can be done step-by-step by setting out the calculation carefully and remembering to regroup if necessary.



Work out

78 × 7



1. Rewrite the calculation vertically, like this:

78 x 7

2. Then multiply the numbers in the ones column together, so 8 × 7 = 56

Write the 6 in the ones column and regroup the 5 tens below in the tens column. 


3. Next multiply the numbers in the tens column together, so 7 × 7 = 49 and add the 5 that was regrouped.


This gives us 49 + 5 = 54, so we write the 4 in the tens column and the 5 in the hundreds column.


So      78 × 7 = 546
