# Solve using Properties of Multiplication

Using properties of multiplication, we can easily multiply a two-digit number with a one-digit number.

In order to do so, decompose one factor and multiply the other factor by its parts using distributive property.

According to the distributive property of multiplication,

a × (b + c) = ab + ac

Here, a, b, and c are any three numbers (not equal to zero).

For example: Let's find the product 16 × 6.

First decompose 16 as 16 = 10 + 6.

So, we have:

16 × 6 = (10 + 6) × 6

= (10 × 6) + (6 × 6)  [using distributive property]

= 60 + 36                  [using multiplication facts]

= 96

So, 16 × 6 = 96.
