Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will learn how to multiply a decimal number by a single digit number.



Work out 3.87 × 7



If we multiply 3.87 by 100, we get 387.

Now work out 387 × 7 = 2709


Then divide 2709 by 100 to 'cancel out' the fact that we multiplied by 100 earlier. 

This gives the answer 2709 ÷ 100 = 27.09
