ANSWER: 6

Here's another example:

Multiply 345 x 320

345

x 3 2 0 multiplier

6900

1 0 3 5__

1 1 0,4 0 0 product

You should know that 0 times any number is 0, but you cannot throw it away if it comes at the

end of a number. If the multiplier ends with one or more zero, you can move the multiplier over to the

right, so that the first figure comes under the first digit of the number to be multiplied. Draw a line,

bring down the 0, and start to multiply from right to left.

2 x 5 = 10

put down 0 under 2 and carry 1

2x4= 8

add I carried and put down 9 under 4

2x3= 6

put down 6 under the 3

3 x 5 = 15

put down 5 under 3 and carry 1

3 x 4 = 12

add 1 carried, put don 3 under 6, and carry 1 again

3x3= 9

add 1 carried and put down 10 to the left of 3

Draw another line and add to get the product,
