# How to Multiply two-digit numbers in seconds

Multiplication of two-digit numbers always becomes challenging in mind. This we can overcome by learning simple tricks.

**First step:** Multiply sideways and write answers in 2digit format together.

Multiply 3 by 2 and write it as 06

Multiply 6 by 9 and write it as 54

**Second step**: Diagonal multiplication of two digits.

Multiply 3 by 9 and write it as 27

Multiply 2 by 6 and write it as 12 in the center

**Third step:** Add all the numbers

1044 is the answer.

## The first example of 74*87 is given below.

The first one represents the new method and the second one represents the traditional method.

## The second example of Two-digit when it gives the single-digit answer

## Third Example: How to multiply when all give unit place answer

See the above example where we multiply 21 by 32. Sideways multiplication of 2 and 3 result is 6 but we need to write in two-digit format i.e 06, multiplication of 1 and 2 is 2 which we write it as two-digit format i.e 02.

The same holds good with diagonal multiplication i.e 3 by 1 and 2 by 1.
