Maths Mate Sheet 6 Term 4 Question #24

The Problem: Fill in the missing digits in the multiplication problem.

2   ?   6

x             3

?   3  ?

How I solved it:  First I did 6 times 3 equals 18 so I put down the 8 an carried the 1 to the next column. I thought what is closest to 13 in the 3 times table and that is 4 times 3 equals 12 so I put 4 in the box and added the one to get 13 so the 3 is already down so I carry the 1 to the next column. Then I did 2 times 3 plus 1 equals 7 so I put the seven down and the answer is 738.
