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]
So, 16 × 6 = 96.
