Multiplying decimal by a whole number is just same like multiply as usual.

**How to multiply a decimal by a whole number?**

To multiply a decimal by a whole number follow the below steps:

● Multiply the decimal without the decimal point by the whole number.

● Remember to mark the decimal point in the product from right to left according to the number of decimal places in the given decimal number.

Worked-out problems to find the product of a decimal by a whole number:

Read the above explanation step-by-step and try to understand the examples on multiplication of decimals.

**1. Find the product:**

**(i)** 5.36 × 8

= 536 × 8 (Find the product without the decimal point)

= 4288

Since, 5.36 has two decimal places.

Therefore, 5.36 × 8 will also have two decimal places.

Therefore, 5.36 × 8 = 42.88

**(ii)** 11.71 × 12

= 1171 × 12 (Find the product without the decimal point)

= 14052

Since, 140.52 has two decimal places.

Therefore, 11.71 × 12 will also have two decimal places.

Therefore, 11.71 × 12 = 140.52

Word problems on multiplication decimal by a whole number:

**2. **The length and breadth of a rectangle are 8.15 m and 3.36 m. Find
the area of the rectangle.

**Solution:**

Length of the rectangle = 8.15 m

Breadth of the rectangle = 3.36 m

Area of the rectangle = (8.15 × 3.36) m**3. **The length and
breadth of a rectangle are 12.82 m and 5 m. Find the area of the rectangle.

**Solution:**

Length of the rectangle = 12.82 m

Breadth of the rectangle = 5 m

Area of the rectangle = (12.82 × 5) m● **Related Concept **
