# Multiplication of a Number by a 3-Digit Number

In multiplication of a number by a 3-digit number are explained here step by step.

Consider the following examples on multiplication of a number by a 3-digit number:

1. Find the product of 36 × 137

Solution:

(i)

 (a) 137 = 7 + 30 + 100 (b) 36 × 7 = 252 (c) 36 × 30= 1080 (d) 36 × 100 = 3600

(ii)

 (a) 137 = 7 ones + 3 tens + 1 hundred (b) 36 × 7 ones = 252 ones (c) 36 × 8 tens = 108 tens (d) 36 × 1 hundred = 36 hundreds

Multiply 543 by 278

Solution:

(i)

 (a) 278 = 8 + 70 + 200 (b) 543 × 8 = 4344 (c) 543 × 70 = 38010 (d) 543 × 200 = 108600 Product = 150954

(ii)

 (a) 278 = 8 ones + 7 T + 2 H (b) 543 × 8 ones = 4344 ones (c) 543 × 7 T = 3801 tens (d) 543 × 2 H = 1086 hundreds Product = 150954

(B) Multiply 827 × 107

Solution:

(i)

 → 100 + 7 Multiply by 7 Multiply by 100

(ii) 474 × 240

 → 200 + 40 Multiply by 40 Multiply by 200

3. Multiply 2437 by 324

Solution:

(i) First Method

 (a) 324 = 4 + 20 + 300 (b) 2437 × 4 = 9748 (c) 2437 × 20 = 48740 (d) 2437 × 300 = 731100

The product = 789588

(ii) Second Method

 (a) 324 = 4 ones + 2 tens + 3 hundreds (b) 2437 × 4 ones = 9748 ones (c) 2437 × 2 T = 4874 tens (d) 2437 × 3 H = 7311 hundreds The product = 789588

These are the examples discussed on multiplication of a 2-digit, 3-digit and 4-digit number by a 3-digit number.
