Multiplying Money

We will discuss here about the multiplying money. Bigger amounts of money are multiplied in the same way as we multiply ordinary numbers. We multiply the amount without considering decimal point and then place the decimal point in product at the same place where it is placed in the multiplicand.

 Let us consider some of the examples on multiplication of money.

The product is $ 378.15.


2. Multiply $ 48.25 by 32.

    $ 48.25

      ×  32

       9650
