### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will multiply by numbers less than 1

Method

If you are multiplying by 0.07, we first multiply this by 100 to get 7.

We then multiply by 7 instead of 0.07 as this is much easier.

Our answer is now 100 times too big, so we must divide by 100 to get the right answer.

Example

73 x 0.03 = 73 x 3 ÷ 100 = 219 ÷ 100 = 2.19

NB: The answer is less than 73.
