We will learn how to solve the word problems on multiplication by 2-digit number. Here we will apply the same process when we multiply a 2-digit number by a 2-digit number.
1. There are 15 pencils in one packet. A shopkeeper has 60 such packets in his shop. How many pencils does he have in his shop?
Number of pencils in one packet = 15
Number of packets in the shop = 60
Therefore, total number of pencils in the shop = 60 × 15
= 900 pencils`
2. A garland has 32 flowers. How many flowers are there in 45 such garland?
Number of flowers in a garland = 32
Number of garlands = 45
Therefore, total number of flowers in 45 garlands = 45 × 32
= 1440 flowers
