## INFORMATION

### LONG MULTIPLICATION

In long multiplication, follow the steps below.

• Write the numbers so that the same places are aligned in the same column.

• Working from right to left, multiply the numbers in the ones place of the bottom number with each digit of the top number.

• In a digit, if the result is greater than 9, carry the tens digit to the next multiplication.

• To obtain the result in a digit, add the carry from the previous digit of the product.

• When the multiplications end for the ones digit of the bottom number, move to the tens digit and again working from right to left multiply each digit of the top number with the tens digit of the bottom number.

Shift the result one place left and write it to a new line.

• For each digit in the bottom number, multiply that digit with all digits in the top number and write the results on a new line shifted one digit left. These results are called partial products.

• After all multiplications are finished, add the partial products to find the overall result.
